Visa Guidelines is back

Alhamdulillah, I got married to a lovely lady by the name of Sarah and we're enjoying our new phase in life since that momentous day.

And yeah, I graduated from the University of Nottingham and thus, escaping from the evil clutches of my medical school. woot2! probably needs a post on this as well but yeah, maybe later.

at the bottom of this blog, there is an article on visa guidelines for medical students graduated from UK medical schools under MARA scholarship who are planning to work as an FY1 doctor in the UK.

After all, it was my visa guidelines which i made 5 years ago that helped me to get to know a lot of people and for some, have now become my close friends. And it helped a lot of other people as well. So I hope that this guideline would ease your efforts a bit. Visa application is always confusing.

all i have to do is dream

It was the last Saturday. Sleeping peacefully in his room was A, who still didn't realize it's already Subuh. Suddenly, A woke up. Apparently, someone had grasp A's foot causing him to wake up surprisingly. A was moody as most people would when they were awaken from sleep unanticipatedly and he saw a figure at the end of his bed but he didn't know who it was cause everything's dark. Then, the figure illuminated his phone and shone the light onto his face...A saw who it was and smiled instantaneously :)

"Tidak sempurna iman seseorang kamu sehingga dia mencintai saudaranya sebagaimana dia mencintai dirinya sendiri"

Well pak cik, I guess it didn't happen as the dream but at least, this part is =)

Click on the picture to enlarge. You should click it.

Yeah, look what I found;

"ish... bukan slalu tgk adlan lepak dorm ke... sambil dgr mp3... bwat omwork... ader can nak bwat balik x? boleh tak??"

"ni boleh kan adlan??60... mase nyer nak knal lebey rapat...."

And you certainly did more than that! Thanks a lot! You were always there for me & it sucks...cause I'm not always there for you. I'm not sure if you can remember this one but I know you have a good memory too...

"Adlan, nak bagitau satu secret...adlan tak boleh bagitau sape2, bestfriend adlan pon tak boleh"

I was grinning at that time as it was funny cause the statement wasn't valid since you're already my bestfriend :)

"Ujian persahabatan adalah saat datangnya kesulitan"

Guess what? You passed with flying colours! :D

I wish you all the best & I hope you're okay...always have, always will...

Visa Guidelines

Disclaimer: Everything that I have written in this article would not confirm your success in applying for a visa. It is intended to be an explanation of the things that I have done in order for me to get a Tier 4 Visa to begin my work as an FY1 doctor.

29th July - I got my visa today from DX! Alhamdulillah :)

The document which I used as a basis of my decision can be found on this link - click me


14th July - My supporting docs arrived at Visa
16th July - Date of letter to invite me for the Biometric enrolment
19th July - I went to the Post Office for Visa Biometric enrolment
25th July - Received a DX delivery card for my visa because no one was around at home huhu

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED (in my opinion)

1. The ones listed on the cover sheet. For me:
Current passport and previous passport (which contained Tier 4 Visa for medschool) and 2 passport photos

2. A letter of unconditional consent from MARA.

This is based on this section on the Visa Guidance

"54. If you are currently financially sponsored by a government or an international scholarship
agency, or your financial sponsorship ended within 12 months of your application being
made, you will need your sponsor’s permission to stay in or re-enter the UK. You must
provide us with your financial sponsor’s unconditional consent in writing. This must confirm
that your sponsor has no objection to you continuing your studies in the UK. If your financial
sponsor does not give consent, we will refuse the application."

page 8 of 78

Method: Call MARA and explain to them that you would like this letter. Email MARA with your full name, passport no, name of hospital for FY1 and your Foundation School. E.g. Royal Preston Hospital, North Western Foundation School

3. Bank statements

The amount for outside of London is £1640. So I sent them a bank statement which is dated within 31 days of my application and the money has been held in the account for 28 days consecutively

4. CAS letter

I just printed it out from the email

5. BMedSci and BMBS degree

Yeah, I actually posted both degrees lol. This is because in the CAS letter, it states that the evidence required to obtain the letter is my degree. Hence, the reason why I did that. In addition, I chose "I have an academic qualification, at least
equivalent to a UK Bachelor's degree, taught in
English" as an evidence to demonstrate my English language ability. So, I think these degrees would be sufficient.

6. Cover sheet

Which you can print off after submitting your application

All the best!!
