I am currently a Japanese college student. I am going to do research in artificial intelligence from this April. After completing the first year of research, I am planning to go to the United States for 1 year.

During the last 5-6 months of the plan, I would like to do undergraduate research at some university in the US. I am not sure if it is possible for an international student to do undergraduate research as an irregular student. Of course I am not seeking any units or degrees.

How does the system of irregular acceptation of universities work in the US?

    Can you clarify your academic status while in the US? That is, are you just taking a year away from your college, is the visit a sanctioned part of the program, etc?
