InternationalStudent.com began operation in 1998, answering the calling of a continuously increasing international student population. The response to the site was tremendous and spurred the creation of several other domains. Over time, those sites developed into the International Student Network which is now the leading online resource for international students around the world. Our goal is to enable students to pursue their dreams of seeing the world and improving their education experience. We want to help students in every way imaginable to make them successful in their international education endeavors.
As international education continues to boom, we are committed to maintaining our leadership position by offering
the best resources, information, services, and products for international students. On this site, the flagship of
the International Student Network, you will find useful advice pages for studying in the USA, UK and Australia for
international students, plus a dedicated study abroad center for US students who want to travel abroad. You will
also find information on international student loans, student health insurance, international calling cards,
scholarship tools, travel and other useful information to help get students prepared for their time abroad. All of
our publications and online resources are made available free of charge and we intend to keep it that way.
InternationalStudent.com and the International Student Network is owned and operated by Envisage International Corporation. On other International Student Network sites, you will find even more tailored and specific information for international students.
