Tertiary institutions will soon be breaking for a long vacation. Students who can afford usually choose to spend their vacation in the United Kingdom.

List of Documents required

Passport

Valid Passport. It recommended that it has at least two free leaves for visas and stamps. Using passports that’s full or without free pages for visa and stamps is likely to delay your application.

Proof of Studies

As a student, you should add documents to prove that you are in school. A letter of introductory from your school is a must-have document. Other additional documents that may support your status as a student are Academic Transcripts, Admission Letters and Student ID. If you have already paid the next semester’s fees, you can also add receipt.

Sponsorship

This is a very important aspect of visa applications as everything on travel is about money. Here, you demonstrate that you have enough funds to cover your trip. Almost all students are sponsored and as such students are not expected to have enough funds to pay for their trips themselves unless they are also working or have source of income. Your sponsor must demonstrate that he/she is capable of paying for your trip.

These are the documents you have to obtain from your sponsor:

Bank Statements (For the past 3 to 6 months)

Proof of income: If self-employed, business registration documents, Tax Certificate, invoices, receipts and documents relating to any other sources of income, if any. If your sponsor receives salary rather, add copies of his/her payslips, introductory letter from place of work, and Letter of Appointment.

ID: if sponsor has travel experience, include copies of his/her visas. Copy of sponsor’s ID should be included.

Letter of Sponsorship: A letter confirming his commitment to sponsor you. If your sponsor is anyone other than your parent, the reason for the sponsorship should be stated and must make sense (especially in this current economy where no one is expected to waste money). Remember to include your Birth Certificate if your parent is sponsoring your trip. This will confirm your relation.

Accommodation

If you have a host in the UK, he/she can send you a letter of invitation indicating that they have a place to host you. A letter of invitation must include the letter itself, proof of address, proof of employment and copy of ID. If your host is your sponsor, bank statement must be included.

If you don’t know anyone in the UK or do not have a host in the UK, it means you will be living in a hotel/hostel throughout your stay. 

Print the hotel booking confirmation and include it in your application.

Flight Reservation

I have always argued why embassies require this as part of visa applications because one cannot confirm flights until visa is issued. Flight reservations also cancel within 2 days if payment is not made. This means that the embassies assess a cancelled reservation as part of the application. To the visa applicant, this gives you an idea of how much to spend on air ticket but fares are not guaranteed until purchased. May be this document helps the embassies to know the route you intend to use.

When making flight reservations make sure the date of arrival matches the check-in date of the hotel reservation.

Tour Itinerary

The Visa Officer may want to know how you intend to spend your days in the UK. You might have read or heard a lot about the UK that influenced your decision to visit the country. Write and indicate what you intend to do on each day of your stay in the UK.

NOTE: You are not applying for a Study Visa, you are applying for a Standard Visitor Visa which is needed for your holiday.

After completing the online visa form, you will be redirected to the website of the Visa Application Center where you will book an appointment to submit your biometrics and supporting documents (That’s if you chose ASSISTED SERVICE). Remember to print all confirmations and documents checklist.

You can print the completed visa application but not required at the Visa Application Center.

After honouring your appointment, TLSContact will forward your documents and biometrics to UK Visas for a decision to be made.

NOTE: The decision to issue a visa is a sole responsibility of the Visa Officer. Do not make any travel plans until a visa is issued. Following these steps does not guarantee a successful application.

Where to apply

TLSContact, Movenpick Ambassador Hotel,

Emporium Building, 1st floor,

Accra

What to pack

  • Yellow Fever Vaccination Cards are checked at the Kotoka International Airport.
  • Hotel Confirmation/letter of invitation
  • Funds for your trip

Apple launches MacBook Pro with new chips, larger displays, and the notch

Apple revealed new MacBook Pros, and nearly everything about them has changed.

Most importantly, the MacBook Pro laptops come with Apple’s new chips. That’s right, its chips, plural, because Apple launched two new chips: The powerful M1 Pro, and the even more powerful M1 Max.

The M1 Pro has either six or eight high-performance cores and two efficiency cores, giving it 70 percent better performance compared to last year’s M1. It also has a 14-core or 16-core GPU, which Apple claims gives it two times better graphics performance compared to the M1. The M1 Pro supports a maximum 32GB of RAM memory.

Then there’s the M1 Max, which has more memory bandwidth, and 32 GPU cores, giving it 4x better graphics performance than the M1. It supports a maximum of 64GB of RAM memory.

But this time, the MacBook Pro hasn’t only been upgraded on the inside. The devices come in new sizes — 14.2 and 16.2 inches — and have a new keyboard that has physical function keys instead of the Touch Bar.

The display has also been upgraded, and the rumors were true: The new MacBook Pro laptops have an iPhone-like notch on top, which hosts the new 1080p FaceTime camera. This is because the bezels on the displays have shrunk to just 3.5mm, which means that those display sizes were made possible in nearly the same-sized enclosure as on the previous models.

The 16.2-inch model has a resolution of 3,456 x 2,234 pixels, for a total of 7.7 million pixels, while the 14.2-inch model has a resolution of 3,024 x 1,964 pixels for a total of 5.9 million pixels. Both displays have the same mini-LED tech seen in the iPad Pro, and support an adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz.

As expected, the new MacBooks now have a ton of ports: On one side, you get HDMI, Thunderbolt 4, and an SD card reader. On the other, there’s a headphone jack, two more Thunderbolt ports, and yes, the MagSafe connector has returned.

Speakers and microphones have also been upgraded, and the new MacBooks are far more versatile when it comes to connecting additional displays; with the M1 Pro chip, you can connect two additional XDR displays, and with the M1 Max chip, you can connect up to three XDR displays and an additional 4K TV.

As for battery life, Apple claims the smaller model can handle up to 17 hours of video playback and up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing. The larger model can do up to 21 hours of video playback, and up to 14 hours of wireless web browsing.

The 14-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,999, though the price goes up to $2,899 when configured with the M1 Max chip and 32GB of RAM. The larger, 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,499 when configured with the M1 Pro chip, and it starts at a whopping $3,499 when configured with the M1 Max chip.

How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone

Published

, How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone, Frederick Nuetei

AirDrop lets users wirelessly send files between Apple devices. Because it uses Bluetooth technology, it relies on devices being in close physical proximity to each other. It’s a handy way to quickly share files, photos, etc. without the need to draft an email or message. Plus, AirDrop files are encrypted, so it’s also secure.

Make sure you follow these steps beforehand so that you’re good to go:

  • Turn on Bluetooth and WiFi. You do not need to be connected to a WiFi network but the WiFi setting does need to be on. Also, turn off your hotspot if it’s on. AirDrop won’t work otherwise. 
  • Make sure that the devices are within range of each other — no more than about 30 feet apart.
  • Check the AirDrop sharing settings of the device that is receiving the file. The settings are “Receiving Off,” “Contacts Only,” or “Everyone.” If you choose to only receive files from contacts, make sure that the owner of the device sending the file is saved as a contact. You can adjust these settings in your Control Center or by going to “Settings” > “General” > “AirDrop.”

How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac

Open the file that you want to AirDrop, then tap the share icon, which is the square with the upwards-facing arrow.

That will show you all of the ways you can share a file. Tap the AirDrop icon, which is the concentric circles with a triangle cut out at the bottom.

, How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone, Frederick Nuetei

From there, select the user/device that you’d like to send it to. Tapping the user/device automatically starts the AirDrop process. If no devices are showing up, double-check that all of your settings are correct.

To accept an AirDrop on your Mac, a preview window will pop up on your device asking you to accept or decline the transfer. If you accept the AirDrop, it will show up in the same app it was sent from (a photo sent via AirDrop will show up in your photos app.)

How to AirDrop from Mac to iPhone

There are a few different ways you can share a file via AirDrop on a Mac.

1. From Finder

Locate the file you want to share. Instead of opening it, control-click/right-click on the file. In the dropdown, go to “Share” then choose AirDrop from the menu.

2. From the open file

If the file that you want to share is already open, you can AirDrop from the toolbar of the open application. Find “Share” then AirDrop from the pop-out menu. The “Share” button will usually be under “File,” but might be its own section in the Toolbar or in another section, depending on the app.

3. Drag and drop

Last but not least, in the “Finder” window, you can drag and drop the file into AirDrop. Click and hold down on the file and drag it into the AirDrop section located under “Favorites.” Still holding down on the file, drag and drop it over the receiving device.
