For visiting the countries of the European Union, one requires Schengen Visa. New EU rules on short-stay visas make it easier for travelers to apply for a visa to come to Europe, facilitating tourism, trade, and business.
The short-stay visas cover the 22 EU countries that are part of the Schengen area (Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden), as well as for four associated countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland. A uniform short-stay visa issued by one of these countries covers travel throughout the 26 Schengen countries for up to 90 days in any 180-day period.
In case, you are planning to go for education overseas, you will have to apply for a national visa and not a Schengen visa.
