International Education News

One of the best things about working in international education is the rhythm of the year, as the passing of each season and semester brings a new challenge. As the frantic pace of students settling back in to campus passes, which for us means a reprieve from the crush of service for our insurance customers, we can turn to our autumn priorities, which include the Travel Video Contest, preparation for nearly 20 fall conferences around the world, and releasing our latest video resource, Sexual Assault Awareness for International Students. I hope your new school year is off to a great start, and enjoy the newsletter!

Travel Video Contest Now Open

The Travel Video Contest is back for its eleventh year which means your students have the chance to win $4,000 and their very own blog on Every year we receive inspiring videos from around the globe from determined students in the pursuit of international education. If your students have a story to tell they won’t want to miss the chance to share it in this contest.

Students currently studying outside of their home country can submit a video about any trip they would like to take, while those still living in their home country should create a video about a proposed study abroad. Videos can be no longer than 5 minutes and must be submitted by the deadline of October 14th, 2016.

See more information on the 2016 Travel Video Contest.

Sexual Assault Awareness Video Released

Hot on the heels of our popular US Healthcare and Mental Health Awareness videos, we are pleased to announce the launch of our third video “Sexual Assault Awareness for International Students”.

The topic of sexual assault has hit the headlines over the last few years with a string of high profile cases in the media. Laws and cultural norms vary around the world on this topic, so it's important that international students know how it works in the USA.

Our 5 minute video is designed to provide international students with the facts about what sexual assault and consent are, how to prevent an assault from happening and what to do if one does occur. You are free to embed the video into your website, or use it at your student orientation.

Your International Student Office and Social Media

Seventy percent of students use social media to find out about colleges and universities, according to a recent EducationUSA Global Social Media Survey. When trying to reach your international student recruitment goals, using social media has become a critical component of any well-designed plan, and a very cost-effective one. If you’re on the fence when it comes to your international student office having a social media presence, read this month’s latest blog to learn more about some of the potential benefits.
