Hi Abuzar i have been here for a while i can’t say i know everything but i know this, since you are going University of Malaya or UM, it has two semester intakes, which makes you in the list of sem2 in this february, so what you need to do is apply your VAL through emgs ASAP , cause time is kicking and you are running late. If this isn’t helpful you can contact emgs directly through this ######### and ask them for help.
The problem is that I haven’t got my offer letter from UM, as it is not yet uploaded to my profile. I only received a congratulatory email from post-graduate studies. My supervisor tells me that I have to wait for the holidays to end to get the offer letter.
I wanted to ask, how much time does the issuance of VAL usually take? And EMGS would expedite a direct application or university based application fastly?
If things go smoothly free from errors or missing documents it takes 4 weeks or 1month some times even faster and up to 15-20 days, as they will tell you that during processing your application.
But you have to have your offer letter cause it’s necessary when applying it directly through emgs,
I don’t know if anyone else is facing the same issue. I have had the congratulatory email from UM for about a week. Wrote to many people within the University about the issue of issuing offer letter, but Supervisor told me that wait for a week and you will have it after the holidays, I am waiting for it.
Problem is all about the holidays, that made things more muddy and made people wait more, but it’s okey every thing gonna work out after this week, just make sure to apply as soon as you get that offer letter. Wish you luck
