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.

i knew you were trouble

Some things..

medschool's going down.

..are simply meant to be. 

What I learned from my failures include the following:

i. That it is hard to fight against a system when you're just a small unit. You need backup. Which is the reason why my mum has agreed to join me in my plan to take down you-know-who. If anyone wants to join me, please let me know. We want to change the system so that other people would not suffer. It may take a long time but the revolution is here!

ii. That in life, it really depends on your rizk. You might have been good, exceptional, flawless..but if the examiner is a you-know-what, you can still fail your exams. 

And these things happen for a reason cause Allah has bigger plans for you. 

So persevere and don't give up. Make them pay. Your story is going to be an inspiration for others. A lot of lessons to be learnt. Remember the very moments of despair when you feel like all hope is lost. The time when you begged that Allah will give you a miracle. These moments are the ones that make you who you will be in the future.

And alhamdulillah, that Allah has given me an awesome experience. 

Initially, I wanted to write really nasty things about you-know-where but I changed my mind, haha. But I have to say that even me and the admin at North Western has become bffs unlike the admin in you-know-where. I even told the North Western admin about my wedding plans so that she could change my pre-employment check date. Unlike the admin in you-know-where, such a trouble.

And I'm definitely looking forward to the day that I will say goodbye...

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!!
