Graduate Certificates for International Students help

Postby bilalhayat » Fri, 13 Sep 2013 06:28:16 -0500

Hi,

I am a graduate of London School of Economics (international programme) from Pakistan. I am planning to do a graduate certificate in marketing or political science from the US.

I was wondering if there are any Graduate Certificate programs being offered in the US from reputable universities that would make me eligible for an F-1 visa. Ive browsed through many University websitse and all the information is very vague. From what I understand you need to be a full time student at an institute to be eligible for the F1 visa. Most universities consider 9 credit hours or 12 hour degrees to be full-time. Some state that 36 units are required.

As I have studied my entire life using the British system these terms dont make much sense to me. I would be very thankful if someone could point me in the right direction (or hopefully send a list of universities that offer full time graduate certificates).

I will not be seeking financial aid.

I will be posting this in several other related forum topics as well.

Thanks in advance!

There are many schools in the U.S. that offer graduate certificate programs that will make you eligable for the F-1 visa - check them out with the USA School Search Tool. You can narrow your search down by field of study, degree level, school location and more, making your search quick and easy!

In regards to the F-1 visa requirements, take a look at this great resource. It lays out detailed instructions on applying, the interview and much more.

Best of luck!
