What is an F1 Student Visa?
The F1 Student Visa is suitable for eligible pupils who wish to attend a full course of study at colleges, universities, and high schools in the U.S.
It can also be used by foreign nationals coming to the country to attend a language training program. However, it must be noted that the F1 Visa cannot be used to attend publicly funded adult education programs.
If you wish to pursue a course of study that is not academic, such as post-secondary vocational or business schools, you should apply for an M-1 Visa.
