Default Take it

No, it's not an easy thing to get, even when it's volunteering and unpaid.

I suggest you grab the opportunity.

For the Visa interview I suggest you tell them the truth, which is you are going to do research volunteer. Of course add some extra stuff to your talk, like by saying you want to gain experience and this is a great opportunity for to learn how research is done so that you can enhance your future career development ...bla bla bla
