    No. An F-1 visa does not apply to vocational schools.

    Instead, you would need to apply for an M-1 Visa. This visa is specific to vocational schools and all other non-academic related courses, other than language training.

    In order to qualify for an M-1 visa you would need to meet the following criteria:
    -You must be enrolled in an “academic” educational program, a language-training program, or a vocational program
    -Your school must be approved by USCIS
    -You must be enrolled as a full-time student at the institution
    -You must be proficient in English or be enrolled in courses leading to English proficiency
    -You must have sufficient funds available for self-support during the entire proposed course of study
    -You must maintain a residence abroad which he/she has no intention of giving up.

    In order to best assess if you qualify for an M-1 it is recommended that you speak with a qualified immigration specialist.
