Study Abroad Guide for International Students
An international education is something that will provide you with such an enriching and rewarding experience that it will last with you for the rest of your life - you will learn new things, experience new cultures and it will open up your mind to the wide world in which we live.
The InternationalStudent.com Study Abroad Center has been designed to provide you with information, resources and assistance for those students who are interested to further their education studying abroad. We offer a program search to locate courses around the world, plus you can learn more about the "study abroad experience" through our study abroad blog.

Funding your education is not easy, but did you know that you can obtain loans for study abroad education? We highlight two programs offering loans for US students who are spending a semester or longer abroad, and a program for US students directly enrolled in a foreign school. We also give advice on maximizing federal loans, and you can apply online today directly to any of the programs we feature.
As you travel abroad, whether for a semester or more, you will need to make sure you have adequate international health insurance coverage to cover medical emergencies, but also to cover evacuation and repatriation. To learn more about the various plans and options for students please see our study abroad insurance center.
Deciding where to live when studying abroad is a big decision and can greatly impact your year abroad.
