The United States welcomes foreign citizens who come to the United States to study.Before applying for a visa, all student visa applicants are required to be accepted and approved by their school or program.
Once accepted, educational institutions will provide each applicant the necessary approval documentation to be submitted when applying for a student visa.
F1-Visa is the most common type of student visa. 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.
You will also need an F-1 visa if your course of study is more than 18 hours a week.
If you plan engage in non-academic or vocational study or training at a U.S. institution then you need an M-1 visa.

U.S. law does not permit foreign students to attend public elementary school (kindergarten to 8th grade) or a publicly funded adult education program. Hence, F-1 visas cannot be issued for study at such schools.
An F-1 visa can be issued for attendance at a public secondary school (grades 9 to 12), but the student is limited to a maximum of 12 months at the school. The school must also indicate on the Form I-20 that the student has paid the unsubsidized cost of the education and the amount submitted by the student for that purpose.
