What's New @ Envisage This Month?

Just as they have for each of the past six years, the videos are piling in, some by mail, some via YouTube and others through our website. Make sure you encourage your students to participate as this year's winning video will scoop the $4,000 grand prize, and we have excellent runner up prizes as well.

The idea is very simple: tell us a story about a trip you want to take, in a video that is no longer than five minutes. For an international student, it can be any trip at all; and for someone still in their home country, the video has to be about a proposed study abroad. Past winners have been amazing, and the field of entries gets stronger every year! Find out all about the travel video contest on our contest landing page and help us spread the word!

What's Hot?

Over the past decade, we have built the traffic to our network of international education sites by offering information, resources and services that international students want and need. Now that we reach well over 4 million international students per year, and we have built the technical tools we need, we have launched our unique student lead service.  Focusing solely on international education, we are delivering thousands of exclusive, high quality leads to schools and partners each month, to rave reviews. Our leads work!

Are you looking for high school seniors, or older students already holding a Bachelors or Master's degree? Do you want students interested in studying law, culinary, or liberal arts from the UK? Or maybe an MBA from India, Singapore or South Korea? We can match the ideal international student to your school's programs. Tell us what type of student you are looking for and we will do the rest.

Please email us or call us at 888-247-1387 to learn more.

International Financial Aid

International Student Loan is excited to announce the first-ever student loan comparison tool specifically designed for international students. Now, international students can enter their school, and see an overview of the loans and lenders available to them specifically.

A student loan comparison tool is not a new idea, but the existing tools are focused on domestic students and show many loans and lenders that international students are not eligible for.  As an international student, you wouldn't know which loans and lenders you are eligible for, often until you've gone through the entire application, wasting tons of time. We are delighted to solve this issue and offer international students the ability to effectively compare loan terms.

Schools around the world link to International Student Loan to help students make their dream of studying abroad a reality. You are welcome to share our information with your students or contact us to see how we can work with you and help your students directly. Please let them know about the new comparison tool available now!
