International Student Visas

New School Center For Media is approved by the Department of Homeland Security’s Student Exchange and Visitor Program to receive non-immigrant foreign students.

Once a prospective student has been accepted by the school, the school issues an I-20 form which allows the student to submit an application for a M-1 visa for the duration of the program.

Once in possession of their I-20 form, the student must register with SEVP and then apply for the visa at a U.S. consulate near their residence. It is recommended to start the process four months at least ahead of the start of the program.

Students who have received a visa may arrive one month prior to the start of their program and stay one month after the end of their program.

IT Challenges in the Financial Industry

A 645-hour program aimed at computer science students who wish to build a career in the financial sector - banks, brokerage firms, insurance companies, investment funds, clearing houses or institutions such as central banks.

The program spans eight months; courses and exercises are 4 hours a day, five days a week. All national holidays are off, as well as two-week breaks around Christmas and Easter.

Admission and visa application: candidates must have completed three years of studies for programming and database management. Once accepted, students receive an I-20 form which allows them to apply for a DS-160 form with the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and request an interview with a U.S. consulate officer. The total cost of applying for a student visa is $510.

Internship: a program that spans eight months qualifies for an extended stay for a two-month internship. Students must apply for the visa extension with the forms I-765 and I-539 not more than 90 days before the end of their program.
