Short-term study visa seems to fit the bill but I want to be extra careful as I may end up extending my stay. I've done my research already but am seeking to hear a few anecdotal experiences similar to mine before I apply for the visa.
I'm not getting paid (which suggests short-term study) but I'd like as much freedom as possible and I'm going to be receiving a grant from home (in North Carolina). Would that count as compensation?
What's the call?
