US visa - Research period abroad watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi people,

    Have a quick question over US visas, since I can't seem to find the answer anywhere online. I am about to start a History PhD for a UK university in September and my second year will likely involve primary research being undertaken in the US. How long I stay over there is currently up in the air, but I'm curious to know what type of visa I would have to apply for? The research would be for the benefit of a UK institution, so I assumed that it may not be an educational visa? Any help or guidance would be magnificent.

    I don't think it matters who benefits. If you're going to do stuff for your PhD then you're studying so a study visa makes sense. Your uni, the partner uni and the US visa people should really advise you.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
