Health Insurance

As an international student, studying abroad around the world, international student health insurance is one of the most important aspects of your experience abroad – and could make the difference between an experience you cherish for the rest of your life, or an experience that you will remember for all the wrong reasons.

As with any travel abroad, obtaining the correct health and travel insurance coverage will not only protect you in the event something happens, but it will also give you piece of mind. As an international student, the type of coverage you will need will vary from what you may traditionally know about health and travel insurance, and there are some distinct differences you need to be aware of.

In its truest form, international student health insurance is a tailor-made health insurance plan designed to cover an international student, and their dependents, that are studying (typically full-time) outside of their home country. In the USA, although not a requirement of the F1 Visa, the J1 Visa does require certain coverage limits to be met – and many other countries have requirements that need to be met to apply for their visa.
