The USA STUDENT VISA
The first thing you need to know if you are studying in the US and think you may need a visa is this-
If you plan on attending a recreational school where you will be spending less than 12 hours a week studying you DO NOT need to apply for a student visa If your course of study does exceed 18 hours per week then you will need to apply for either an F1 or an M1 visa.
F-1 Student Visa
The F-1 visa is the most popular student visa for those individuals who plan on studying in America. You need this visa if you plan on studying at an accredited college or university program in the United States. F-1 applicants should be aware that that they are allowed to seek out employment that is on-campus as long as it does not exceed 20 hours per week.
Unlike F-1 visa applicants, individuals who wish to apply for an M-1 visa must have the ability to prove that they will be able to pay all tuition and living costs for the entire duration of their stay in America. M-1 visa recipients are not allowed to work in the US while in M visa status.
The other difference between the F-1 and the M-1 visa is that M-1 visa holders are engaged in non-academic or vocational study or training at an American school or institution.
