You surely mean Visual Studio, right?

POV-Ray is written in C++, so Visual Basic will get you nowhere; you'll
need Visual C++. Microsoft Visual Studio includes both.

As far as licenses are concerned, as a student you most likely qualify
for the free Community edition of Visual Studio 2015, which is known to
work "out of the box" with the current master branch of POV-Ray (unlike
the Express editions of older Visual Studio versions).
