This month we’re delighted to introduce you to five new members of the Envisage team! You will meet this excellent group below and we’re not done hiring yet. It’s also almost tax time, so we’ve updated our very popular international student tax resources for 2016. Tax filing for most international students is quite simple and our free resources will guide your students through the process quickly. For those with tougher questions, we’ll be hosting a live Google Hangout where students can get the personal guidance they need. We also highlight the new monthly reporting for our Featured School partners, and share our best practices white paper titled “Selecting and Managing International Student Health Insurance.”

  • Tax Video - We have a step-by-step tax video to help guide international students through the process and address some of the most common questions we receive.

International Insurance Trends and Best Practices

Industries are always evolving, and the international insurance industry is no different. Keeping up with policy changes can be a challenging task for international education advisors, especially in such a complex field. You need to rely on those within the field to provide their insight so that you can make the most informed decisions for your students.

Our new international insurance best practices guide titled “Selecting and Managing International Student Health Insurance”, is a comprehensive resource to help you navigate the insurance selection and implementation process. For a quick summary of the purpose of the white paper and to determine if it will be helpful to you, please read our blog post.
