The university sends you an official Certificate of Eligibility which is form I-20 for the F-1 student visa and J-1 visa for   exchange students.

Visas can be issued up to 120 days before the scheduled date of departure. In order to make sure that you have your visa before the first day of class, apply as soon as possible and provide enough time to wait for processing, as well as interview.

Preparing for the Visa interview

The interview time is usually two to three minutes. That’s all the time you get to make an impression. But the idea is not to make an impression, just relax and be truthful. You could be asked what you had for breakfast that day, smile and say parantha, if you have had them. It’s just to strike a  conversation with you.

 

Of course, they will ask you why you are going to the US, why you have opted for a certain university and not the others. They might even ask you a little bit about the course you are planning to pursue. They may ask if you plan to work in the US after completion of a degree. Be truthful and say that at the moment there are no plans; that you plan to come back to your country, however, if you do get a good offer, you would like to work, gain experience and come back.

An applicant might be further investigated in the case of certain courses such as Biosciences and Robotics.The nature of the course is such that officers do want to verify applicants are genuine cases.

 

Medical check and insurance

The medical examination is to be done before you leave. A general medical report including Manto, Hepatitis and MMR are required. However, an HIV test is not required.Most of the universities include insurance in the total tuition fees as it is compulsory to have a health insurance; however, some universities do not offer this. So, it is advisable to buy medical insurance from India as it is three-times costlier in the US. For example, ICICI-Lombard offers a student medical insurance policy to Indian students that covers all medical and dental problems. Remember, if you do not take a medical insurance, no doctor or dentist in the US will entertain you.

When you arrive in the US

Don’t get nervous. Yes, people are different, it’s a different country, but keep your cool. Just make sure that you have all your documents when your turn comes to see the immigration officer. And don’t forget to make eye contact.

How to get admission in university to do phd (computer science).How to approach university.Can i do Phd after completion of msc?

Ina 6th Feb, 2020

Hello,

Hope you're doing well.

Yes, you can do PhD after completion of M.Sc, Even you can do Integrated PhD while perusing your M.Sc. For PhD, you must need to complete your masters in the same area of specialization.

Most Universities/Colleges offer admission based on the score of CET (like UGC NET) or conduct their own entrance test (like JNU) for admission into Ph.D. courses hence students would have to make an application for such exams.

For Reference of colleges here is the link:

Thank you.

All the best for your bright future.
