Promoting a Healthy Student Community: Nurturing Well-Being Abroad

Promoting a Healthy Student Community: Nurturing Well-Being Abroad


Studying abroad is an exhilarating adventure, but it also brings forth unique challenges. Amidst cultural exploration and academic pursuits, students often overlook a critical aspect: health care. HDFC Life International’s Global Student Health Care Plan is our beacon of support for Indian students overseas. Let’s delve into how we can foster a healthy student community.

Spreading Awareness: The University Connection

Example: Meet Priya, a bright-eyed student pursuing her master’s degree in the United States. She arrived with dreams of academic excellence but little knowledge about health insurance. Fortunately, her university organized an orientation session where HDFC Life International’s plan was introduced. Priya learned about the comprehensive coverage, cashless facility, and flexibility. She became an advocate, encouraging her peers to explore this safety net1.

Collaborating with Student Associations

Example: Rahul, an engineering student in Germany, faced a medical emergency during his second semester. His student association partnered with HDFC Life International to organize a health awareness workshop. Rahul shared his story—the swift response, the ease of claiming benefits, and the peace of mind. The association now actively promotes the plan, ensuring every student knows their options2.

Success Stories: Inspiring Health Choices

Example: Ananya, an aspiring doctor studying in Australia, discovered the power of preventive care. Routine check-ups revealed a minor health issue that could have escalated. HDFC Life International’s plan covered her expenses, and Ananya now advocates for regular health screenings. Her story resonates with fellow students, emphasizing the importance of early detection3.

“Be Indian, Buy Indian”

As Indian students, we carry our heritage wherever we go. By choosing HDFC Life International’s plan, we not only safeguard our health but also support an Indian brand. It’s more than insurance; it’s a statement—“Be Indian, Buy Indian.” Let’s take pride in our roots and protect our well-being simultaneously.

Creating a Supportive Environment

Example: At the University of Toronto, the Indian Student Association hosts health-themed events. From yoga sessions to mental health workshops, they emphasize holistic well-being. HDFC Life International actively participates, offering guidance on health insurance. Together, we create a supportive ecosystem where students thrive physically and emotionally.


Our journey as international students is enriched by knowledge, friendships, and experiences. Let’s add health consciousness to that list. HDFC Life International’s Global Student Health Care Plan isn’t just a policy; it’s our safety net, our lifeline. As we explore new horizons, let’s prioritize our health—because a healthy student community is a thriving one.😊
