I am invited to attend a conference in Edinburgh. I am clear that I will be requiring UK standard Visa, after going through these links. https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa
However, while booking an appointment I am confused with the Visa Category. The purpose of my visit - Business (Academic) or Tourism?
Conference - General Studies and Status of Women
Related to my Work - No, this is a domain outside my work area.
Profession - Senior Analyst, Finance and IT domain
Since my work is not related, I am assuming that I cannot select Business(Academic).
Kindly guide, If I am missing something here? I have also gone through below links (helpful, but I am from India) -
