With the new semester upon us, it's time to think about
insurance. Most colleges and universities will require
you to show proof of international student health
insurance coverage, or purchase your school's insurance
By purchasing your own coverage, in many cases you can
get comparable or better coverage, and save money. The
Student Secure plan meets most school requirements and
- Up to $300,000 in coverage
- $50 deductible at the student health center
- Medical coverage without sub-limits
- Maternity and mental health coverage
- Pre-existing condition coverage after 6 or 12
The Student Secure plan starts at just $33 per
month for students in the USA, you can apply
quickly online with monthly payments available and we
will complete your waiver form within 24 to 48 business
more and save today!
this month International Student will launch a scavenger
hunt contest across all of our social networks,
including Google+. If you are not already part of this
fast growing social network be sure to sign up and
circle us: https://plus.google.com/102975094318283494037
We believe G+ will provide a unique
experience for our followers as it enables greater
interaction with like-minded students through something
called "hangouts". Many people think hangouts are the
best thing about Google Plus and enable live interaction
with people in your network, and we are excited to
connect live with our circle. Even President Obama
recently used Google Plus' hangout for a press
conference! Try it today.

Rutgers looks to recruit more
The list of US colleges and universities
re-dedicating their efforts to increase enrollment of
international students continues to grow. Rutgers, the
state university of New Jersey with 58,000 students and
a long history of enrolling foreign students, is
stepping up its efforts to increase
internationalization. The university is entering into
partnerships with foreign universities and increasing
the study abroad opportunities for its domestic
students, increasing international enrollment by 30
percent over the past five years and almost doubling the
number of students that study abroad.
Joanna Regulska, Rutgers' Vice President
for International and Global Affairs, said the
58,000-student university needs to reach outside U.S.
borders to stay relevant. "These days you can't
function as an institution without the global
connections," Regulska said today from Poland,
where she is doing a research project.

ongoing internationalization efforts in NJ.com.
We love gadgets! If you read the Fun
Site of the Month regularly, you know this as gadgets
appear high on the list of some of our favourite items.
We recently stumbled across a website called Sortable,
which is a fun little tool which helps you work out
which phone, camera, tablet, etc., you should buy by
presenting them side-by-side based on reviews, features,
prices, etc... If you are in the market for a new toy,
then this is the site for you!
An international student looking to find
both a rewarding and stable medical career might direct
themselves towards studying nursing in the USA. With the
many types of fields and specialties, there is a wide
range of opportunities for any international student. If
you are looking for a career that gives you the ability
to work with people on a regular basis and make a
difference, while providing many international
opportunities, nursing may just be the
field for you!
Nursing is a great career for
international students because it allows for growth and
specialization in many areas, without limiting mobility.
Most people associate nurses with a hospital, which is
true—more than half of all employed nurses are hospital
based employees. Nevertheless, home health care is
growing, and the hospital environment allows for
variety. These nurses can be found in Medical-Surgery,
ED/ER—Emergency, B—Obstetrics, S—Pediatrics,
ICU/NICU—Intensive Care and Oncology, just to name a
few. Some nurses are considered "floaters" and
may rotate among departments and floors.
