We've made it our goal to compile information and resources that students often search for when studying abroad. We want students to have access to what they need for their journey around the globe and know that they are getting a "student-friendly" rate.
Whether you are studying abroad outside the US or will be an international student inside the United States, you will need international student insurance. In either case, we have affordable, reliable plans that are backed by one of the world’s largest and oldest insurer: Lloyds of London. Our excellent customer service team is also able to find a plan that will meet almost any coverage requirements you need.
Hopefully during your studies abroad you will take full advantage of being in a new location and travel as much as possible in and around your host country- even if you’re on a budget. The trick to being able to travel when on a tight budget is to find great deals from a reliable source. Compare information on airfare, rail passes, car rentals, hostels and even homestay programs in our student travel center.
Even with cell phones being as common place as they are these days- it’s not always the cheapest and most convenient way to keep in touch with friends and family back home. International phone cards are an easy and economical way to call those internationally. Plus, InternationalCallingCard minutes never expire, have no monthly service fees, and are billed per minute.
Obtaining an education is priceless, which is why educational costs continue to rise. If you need help funding your international education we have international student loan options available to student studying inside the US and around the globe.
International mobile calls can lead to shockingly expensive bills and although life is full of surprises your cell phone bill shouldn’t be one. If you’re an international student inside the US and need a way to keep in touch while on the go, you might want to consider a pay-as-you-go phone or sim card.
Luckily you only need to file your taxes once a year, because when you do- it can be a long, confusing process. Utilize our student tax return section to learn more about taxes and how you can file without a flaw so you won’t face a penalty.
Every student needs textbooks to accompany their classes, but not every student needs to pay an arm and a leg to buy or rent them. We have partnered with ValoreBooks to help you find new, used and rental books- they always offers free rental return shipping and a hassle-free return policy. This is also a much more convenient option than lugging a suitcase of books across campus.
Each year we host a travel video contest and give students the chance to have their voice heard. Through a short video students tell us why they want to study abroad- and of course the best story wins! While we enjoy each story, there can only be one grand prize winner. However, runner-up contestants still walk away with some great prizes and a smile.
Moving to the US and don't know what to do about furnishing your apartment or dorm? Why go to the expense of shipping your own furniture or buying new furnishings when you head off to school. CORT furniture rental has helped thousands of international students furnish their college apartments. All you have to do is visit their site, tell them what you need and arrive in the US to a fully furnished home away from home.
Finding a credit card as an international student in the US can be difficult, but it is possible.
