About Us

Student Parachute

Student Parachute is a geolocation tracking, student protection and assistance membership that complements typical international student health products. Student Parachute is a proactive 24/7 worldwide assistance service designed to protect students' and their wellbeing.

It is not an insurance policy or a financial product. Our promise is to provide the assistance and response services needed to get international students to safety when the unexpected happens.

We also partner with organisations, education providers and international education agents to keep their people safe and sound wherever they are in the world. If you owe a duty of care to your students or employees, let us help you to keep them safe. Find out more about our work with organisations here.

Please refer to the Student Parachute Member Guide for more information and full details of the benefits and limitations of membership.

Student Parachute is powered by FocusPoint International Inc and promoted and distributed by Crisis Cover Pty Ltd (ACN 632 630 187). You can read more about Crisis Cover here.
