I'm an Indian student and I'll be visiting the Insight Centre at NUI Galway, Ireland from May to July end (<90 days).
My professor and the administrative assistant advise to apply for a short stay tourist visa with the reason being "Other" and the purpose stated as "Research Visit". To support my stay, they will provide me a studentship of 1200 euros per month. Now, some people said that it'll be rejected if I apply for this type of visa and rather, I should apply for an internship visa. But when I do so (by selecting reason as "Internship"), in the application portal I end up in a page that asks me my Employment Permit/Atypical Working Scheme Number. It is mandatory to enter before I proceed to the next page.
So I'm confused as to what visa type I should apply for.
To clear up my motive, I'll be visiting Insight for less than 90 days starting from May and I'll receive 1200 euros per month studentship. And My purpose is "Research Visit" and I'll not be working to get salary there. It'll be very helpful if someone can clear up my confusion and I'll be grateful to them. Thank you!
