As an international student or scholar, the thrill of studying abroad is extraordinary. Your new surroundings are amazing and you’re involved in new and exciting experiences. You’re seeing and visiting places for the first time, while receiving the benefits of a long-term education.

Caught up in all of the excitement, you may not think about falling ill or becoming injured during your studies. Without warning, your experience abroad can quickly become frightening and risky if you’re not prepared for a medical emergency. As an international student, peace of mind is a priority when you study abroad.
