Envisage International Newsletter

Welcome to the fourth edition of the Envisage International Newsletter. November was busy, as we wrapped up our NAFSA conference season, celebrated International Education Week with the announcement of our travel video contest winner and eagerly devoured the new data released with the Open Doors Report. For professionals in international education and exchange, it comes as no surprise that the number of students overseas increased yet again with record highs of 723,000 international students in the US and 271,000 US study abroad students. We hope you enjoy the newsletter, with a focus on our core business - advertising and student recruitment, international student loans, and international student insurance.

We look forward to continuing our efforts to serve students and schools around the world.

What's New @ Envisage This Month?

NAFSAWe are back at the office after our extended tour of the NAFSA regional conferences. We attended, exhibited and presented at a total of 9 different regional conferences, and had the opportunity to meet many of you at our Envisage International booth, our International Student Insurance booth, in one of our many presentations or at a social event. It was great to meet so many nice NAFSAns!

International Financial Aid

International Student Loan is pleased to announce its newly released loan comparison tool. Specifically designed to provide international students with the opportunity to compare loans and lenders, the new system streamlines the process for international students, study abroad students, and foreign enrolled students to find and apply for student loans.

Designed with the needs of students in mind, the new loan comparison tool matches students directly to lenders that offer loans to international students at their school. At the same time, with its new ease and functionality, students can compare each lender’s terms and conditions to determine which loan is right for them.

Contact Jenny Frankel for more information on the new comparison tool or to discuss the best ways to make this resource available to your students.

International Student Health Insurance

With a new semester right around the corner, many schools are busy preparing for another international student orientation, and International Student Insurnance can help!

On request, International Student Insurance mails out brochures every year to distribute to students or to include in orientation packets. Our Student Secure plan is a market-leading international student health insurance plan, which is available in three levels to ensure that your students are properly insured while studying overseas. The plan can be purchased individually and will meet most school and governmental requirements offering comprehensive coverage.
