Nursing in England Discouraged (May 2010 from

To all of those who are from the Philippines and are planning to get student visa for England, pls dont push it through.   To be truthful i have met filipino nurses and were lured by these agencies that they could process their student visas and can find an employer for them. They were asked £2500- 3000 for their placement fees. When they arrived here there were no jobs. They went once a week to university for their NVQ's. Say they arrived in Leeds and the university that they were supposed to attend is in Birmingham. They were in a difficult situation and yet they cant go back to the Philippines because they owed thousands of pounds just to obtain student visas. Their regrets, no one has told them the reality. Why i am telling you filipino nurses not to come over here because i too am a Filipino/british. I am just concern of what will be your plight when you would be here.
