UK Tom Posted May 18, 2010 Share Posted May 18, 2010 I was recently accepted into a political science MS in Washington DC. Unfortunately I wasn't offered an RA position as they are reserved for PhD in my department. Now I'm trying to find ways of paying for my studies, by working outside of lectures. This hit a bit of a brick wall today when I discovered that students with F1 visas cannot work off campus. Can all students apply for a J1? If so what are the limitations? Is there any kind of loop hole for F1 students wanting to find work? There appears to be a massive incongruence between the visa process (Students must not work they are here to study) and my department (all students are expected to work in order to support their studies). Any ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
