Applying D Visa for Phd Student and Research Assistant position from India


I have an offer from the Uni Bern for PhD and RA position. The Uni has asked me to submit a Visa D application. The application for Work Permit was submitted by Uni already to the Canton.

I have emailed the Embassy, meanwhile, I would like to ask the students of this forum:
1. In the Visa application for the purpose of stay, which is appropriate:
1. Employment 2. Studies or 3. Others (explicitly specifying both employment and studies).

2. While booking for an Embassy appointment via VFS, what Visa category has to be selected: "Students" or "Others"?

3. Have you followed the checklists of Student Visa for a Stay more than 90 days (or) for those with work permit for more than 90 days without authorization (as Phds are considered as special category)?

4. Is it mandatory to book an apartment upfront and provide the address in the probable address field.

Kindly let me know.
