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.

part of me

This is one of the shortest posts on being me ;)

I just want to let you know that I passed my third and final module for the Nottingham Advantage Award, alhamdulillah! This means I've completed the journey =')

If you want to read about how I felt, please click here. And if we're friends on FB, like what Mohd Herie Dahlan and me are right now ;) then you'd see the screenshot that I've uploaded:

I'm just so happy, alhamdulillah :))))) Of course, I tweeted my happiness as always.

Oh, by the way, this is the first time I linked my blog on UoN to being me. I'm a bit hesitant about it really since my personal blog is filled with so many details about myself but then, when I think about it again, this might be the only time for me to attract the attention of others towards Islam. Sure, my writing may not be that good, but at least it's an effort, isn't it? And I'm happy as long as Allah appreciates =)

Anyway, here are the 3 modules that I've done:

(and this is the special post)

Okay, I'm going back to King's Mill Hospital early tomorrow morning since I'm just too tired and sleepy right now. (Tapi masih sempat untuk type 2 posts :P)

And to the people whom I met this weekend and got gifts from me, well that's simply because I love making people's day.

What I learned from this weekend was...we are servants. We serve others by greeting others, helping one another and by doing good deeds.

And how does Adlan Wafi serve others?

He serves others by making them smile, happy and tries his best to make other people's days..and he especially enjoys serving his friends...

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!!
