About Us

Student Parachute

Student Parachute is a geolocation tracking, student protection and assistance membership that complements traditional overseas student health insurance products by protecting against the risks no student or family member wants to consider – like terrorist attacks and natural disasters. Our safety and security services are delivered 24/7 by global leaders in medical, security and travel assistance services, using cutting edge device enabled geolocation technologies to keep students safe.

In addition to protecting a student’s physical safety, we also support their mental wellbeing by providing access to a leading clinically effective mental well-being app that builds resilience against stress, anxiety and depression. Students can speak in-app to clinically trained wellbeing coaches at the touch of a button, receive their own mental health self-management program, and be prompted to reach out to professionals when at risk conditions are identified.

Student Parachute is built upon enduring partnerships, aligned interests and working with the market leaders. We partner with leading health funds and universities to provide international students with comprehensive health insurance, mental wellbeing, and physical security and response services as one initiative service.
