We conduct interviews with our non-U.S. applicants by Skype.

A B1-B2 ("visitor") visa is sufficient for entering the U.S. in order to attend the 10-week residential Launch Phase of the program in San Francisco.
Applying for an F-1 student visa is not an option because UnCollege is classified as an “adult recreational educational course” for visa purposes according to the U.S. Department of State and therefore not empowered to issue the Form I-20.
Only in the very specific circumstance that you already have a previously arranged internship with a company in the U.S. The J-1 ("exchange visitor") visa permits the visa holder to stay longer than 90 days and secure employment as an intern in the United States. UnCollege is not empowered to issue the Form DS-2019 which is a requirement to apply for the J-1 visa.
Yes, but under the B1-B2 visas you are not allowed to earn money from your work.
Yes, some of our non-U.S. fellows will exit the United States at the conclusion of the 10-week Launch phase to pursue their internships in another country.
No. We work closely with each fellow to provide support documentation as you apply for the appropriate U.S. visas. However, your ability to enter the U.S. in possession of the necessary valid visa and travel documents is your responsibility.
