Hi! I'm currently pursuing a Master of Engineering in my home country in Europe and I should be coming to study for a full year in the US starting fall 2021. This will be part of my studies (I'll be earning credits in my home university) and done through an exchange program. I have some questions regarding F1 OPT/CPT. Do I have to be pursuing a degree in the US to be allowed to do CPT/OPT? I am required by my home university to do a 6 months internship at the end of my studies, right after my exchange, would I be able to do that through CPT? If it is not possible will I be able to do OPT and extend my F1 visa after my exchange, as I would have spent a full year studying in a US university? TL;DR: are exchange students allowed to do CPT/OPT?
