Resourceful links

Students when they travel outside their home country to study along with the university academic experience also get an opportunity to experience a new culture and to see different parts of the world and meet new people with varied backgrounds. However when you are outside your home country you are also vulnerable to fall sick given the new living environment, cuisine and weather. Your domestic health insurance may not cover you in a foreign country therefore a good student health insurance plan is necessary to keep you secure in the event of a medical emergency.
