In a major boost for Indian and international students, eight new programmes have been added by US authorities which will be eligible for the postgraduate STEM OPT.


OPT is available to f-1 non-immigrant students in the US. Indian and international students can extend it to 24 months once they complete 12 months of OPT and receive a degree in an approved STEM field of study.
