Types of US student visa 

There are three (3) types of US student visa. The names are:-

However, each of them have sub-category because not every student (applicant) in each category want to do the same thing. I'll explain below.

The first and most popular type of US student visa is the F visa.

What is F1 student visa ?

F1 visa is issued to the main student who want to study in a US college or want to advance their education in a US university. F1 student visa is about traveling to the USA to learn in classroom, just like you do in your own country. F1 visa is also issued to students who want to learn English language.

F1 student visa holders are not allowed to work more than 20 hours a week. And you must not work outside the school, however, if you have extraordinary financial need that may jeopardize your studies, you can speak to your designated school official (DSO) to allow you work for more hours. Under special arrangement, you may also be allowed to work outside the school so that you can pay your tuition fee. If you are an F1 student visa holder, here's how to go from F1 student to Green card to US Citizenship.

What is F2 student visa ?

At the same time the main applicant get issued an F1 visa, he/she may have dependents (wife, children, maid) traveling with him or her. The dependents would also have to apply for sub category F2 visa to allow them enter the US together with the main applicant. So, F2 visa is just a visa issued to the dependent/s of an F1 visa holder.

When the dependents get to the USA, they may also enroll and start schooling in the USA full time if they want, without having to apply for an F1 anymore.

What is F3 student visa ?

The F3 US student visa is the type of visa issued to students living near US border towns in Canada or Mexico, who can easily cross over the border daily to attend school in the USA, then go back each day.

.

M1 visa is issued to a student who want to do vocational or non academic training. Example: it could be issued to a student who wants to learn how to fly an airplane. Or a student who want to learn how to produce movies.

What is M2 student visa ?

At the same time the main applicant get issued the M1 student visa, he/she may also have dependents (wife, children, maid) traveling with him or her. The dependents would also be issued an M sub category visa  called M2 visa. Just like the F2 visa discussed earlier.

What is M3 student visa ?

It's always issued for collaborations, seminars, trade fair, expo, and things of that nature that last for just few days or months. Example: a Russian astronaut coming to the USA to collaborate with NASA on some space exploration project. The Russian astronaut would be issued the J1 visa because he/she is not a student coming to learn, instead he/she is coming to collaborate and share knowledge with US scientists.
