About F-1 and M-1 Visa Programs

Country-specific evaluation

China continues to be the major country sending students to the United States. The majority of overseas students now enrolled in US universities come from China.

Students from South Korea are in third place, followed by students from India in second.

The F-1 division

  • For people who want to enrol in a university or college, high school, private elementary school, seminary, conservatory, language program, or another intellectual establishment in the US, there is a non-immigrant visa available.
  • After completing your community vocational program, the F-1 visa allows you the choice to transfer to a university.

The F1 and F2 visas are subcategories of the F visa.

  • Non-immigrant students who wish to pursue academic and language training courses need F1 visas.
  • The dependents of F1 visa holders use the F2 visas. Dependents of the F1 visa holder are believed to include spouses and unmarried, minor children.

Category M-1

  • It is a different type of student visa for foreign nationals who want to enrol in language training programs, vocational schools, or other recognized non-academic institutions in the US.
  • Only one year may be spent in a vocational program on an M-1 visa before you must return home. Students in M-1 are not permitted to advance to the university level.

The M1 and M2 visas are subcategories of the M visa.

  • An individual who wants to enrol in a non-academic or vocational course uses an M1 visa.

Relevance to the US

  • Since most pay far higher tuition than US citizens, international students significantly boost the US economy.
  • International students made $44 billion in economic contributions to the US in 2019.

British Empire

  • The UK, another nation that draws many international students, has seen a dramatic increase in Indians receiving student visas relative to Chinese students.
