I completed my Master’s in Data Science and AI last month and would like to hear from professionals regarding switching to an exceptional promise visa. These are the experiences I have -
- Used hybrid AI algorithms to forecast patient flow for a renowned charity for deaf people in the U.K.; they are using the results of my research to secure funding from the NHS (this was a 6-month industrial placement and also my master’s thesis)
- 6 months of experience leading the data team for a department in one of London’s city councils. I am currently working on a project for them to detect financial fraud using AI (saving them money). This is ongoing.
I was thinking that point 1 meets this: You led the growth of a non-profit organisation or social enterprise with a specific focus on the digital technology sector, as evidenced by reference letter(s) from leading industry expert(s) describing your work, or as evidenced by news clippings or similar evidence.
And point 2 meets this: You led the growth of a product-led digital technology company, product or team inside a digital technology company, as evidenced by reference letter(s) from leading industry expert(s) describing your work, or as evidenced by news clippings, lines of code from public repos or similar evidence.
I can show recommendation letters from people in leading positions in both organisations. As for the third letter, will a recommendation from a person high up in my postgraduate university be accepted? Do these three institutions count as experts in the digital technology field?
As for optional criteria, I am able to show proof of an internationally recognized merit scholarship:
- Evidence of a merit based award that has been granted by an organisation of a similar standing and distinction to the Royal Society in the UK, as well as the selection criteria for this award.
At the moment, these are the strongest points on my profile. I would be really grateful for an experienced individual’s opinion.
