Health and Support Services

Find out what support services you can expect from your university as an international student and spend your time studying abroad. Studying abroad may be an exciting, enriching and rewarding experience. But at first, at least, it can feel frustrating and sometimes overwhelming. New international students must adapt to a new environment, a new culture and perhaps a new language, all at the same time. Most universities (certainly those with large numbers of overseas students), have sponsorship programs designed for international students. This is designed to make the overseas learning experience as easy and enjoyable as possible, from the rest of the program to graduation.

Pre-arrival support:

Many universities have a welcome package or guide specifically designed for students abroad. These may be available online, or may be mailed once you have been assigned a place, and should contain helpful information about study preparation abroad and what to expect when you arrive.

This guide may include topics such as options for living, planning medical insurance, paying tuition fees, visa requirements, living expenses budget, part-time work and advice on what comes with it.

There should also be information about the university and how things work there, including important online resources, administrative departments and campus resources - so that all may be less known when you arrive.

Student Association:

They provide unwavering support to international students depending on the teaching environment and various other activities to comfort new international students.

Student Support for Disabilities:

The staff is available 24/7 with any special arrangements the student wants to comfort their needs.

Having Health Insurance:

Most universities and / or colleges provide health insurance centers for students of all backgrounds. Connect with recipients to find out more about insurance coverage.
