Here we have compiled all the information that you need to know about study visa requirements for studying in the USA.
Please read carefully.
The U.S. Government offers three different student visa types:
- F1 Student Visa: Students applying for a program that requires more than 18 hours
of study in a week require an F1 visa. Spouses or children accompanying F-1
visa recipients will travel on an F-2 visa. Please note that spouses are not able to
work but may accompany and/or apply for their own visa to the U.S. to work or study.
- J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa: The J-1 Exchange visitor visa is for students, visiting scholars or lecturers pursuing an exchange program.
- M-1 Student Visa: Vocational study/ Non-Academic Student Visa/Training in the U.S.
If you wish to engage in academic studies in the United States at an approved school,
such as an accredited U.S. college or university, private secondary school, or approved
English language program then you need an F-1 visa. This is the most common type of student visa.
