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.

when i look at you

I think the title explains my life in the previous week.

It was the day where I went to Portland Primary School and got to see the children once again. It was still kinda hard for me to build rapport with them since I haven't even completed half of my required commitments - They probably have not wholly accepted me as a member of their class. Even so, when we went to the music room and the children started singing; it was the time when a connection was made. I can tell it was their favourite song as I looked at how exuberant they seemed at that time. I looked at one particular child which presumably has grown fond of me and as I looked him in the eye, he smiled like there's no tomorrow. And I just smiled at him back and that was one of the best moments you could ever encountered with a child :)

It was possibly the windiest day so far in my 2nd year in the UK. And I for one am delighted whenever cool, invigorating winds breezed through the land of Nottingham. The temperature was just nice at that time, not too cold to make me shiver but perfectly suited to make anyone who went out on that day to praise Allah for His Magnificence. As I walked to QMC for my CLS class, along came a figure treading along the path underneath the grey dull concrete structure where vehicles would usually chase each other. He might not recognize me from that distance but I was certain of whom I was seeing. And I just kept smiling at the time until we bumped into each other..cause I haven't seen him for quite a while. It was just perfect; it was windy and I was simply happy :)

It was the day filled with unexpectations. I did not know that I'll be meeting you, you or you. And truly, I am thankful for going there. And to you, yeah me too. I'm happy just by looking at you :)

It was many weeks ago when I heard this hadith for the first time. And the effect is still eminent. 

The Messenger (salallahu alaihi wasallam) said, 
“When the inhabitants of Paradise enter Paradise, Allah will say to them, ‘Do you want Me to give you anything more?’ They will reply, ‘Have You not made our faces bright? Have You not brought us into Paradise and moved us from Hell?’ Allah will then remove the Veil and they will feel that they have not been awarded anything dearer to them than looking at their Lord.”

I get goose bumps when I have a read :)

And I also think it is sweet...

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!!
