What is Student Medical insurance?

Student Medical insurance is international student health insurance for full-time students or scholars studying outside their home country. Student Medical insurance offers different levels of coverage with different costs so you can choose the coverage and cost that fits your needs and budget.

Why do I need international student medical insurance?

International study can represent financial risk, and many medical insurance policies do not apply beyond the borders of your home country. A Student Medical insurance health plan can reduce your personal expenses if an unexpected illness or injury should occur during your study abroad program.
