Myself and a friend want to do an industry placement in New York February of next year. Its part of an industry awareness unit on our course. As we are planning on going internationally we have pretty much been left to our own devices as our uni say it is up to us to organise it. So I'm just wondering does anyone have any advice on things such as:

-Travel Visa's (we'll be going for 2 months)

- Locations to avoid

- How to book accommodation

would really appreciate some advice

thanks x
