Three W International® knows issues may occur while international students adjust to a different culture. Your dedicated academic specialists are here to provide you with 24/7 assistance with conflicts and crises that may arise.
Pre – Post Arrival Support
We provide help and support during each student’s arrival and departure including organization and communication of flight arrangements, support during the arrival period in case of flight delays or changes, and assistance with student orientation procedures and programs . Our team also provides recommendations, suggestions, and advice for enculturation.
Student Ambassador Service
Over the past several years, Three W International has continuously strived to identify the various needs of our partner schools here in the States and our families and partner agents throughout China. By identifying those needs, we have developed services specifically designed to support each of them along the way – from admissions support and ongoing service via the Account Management team, staff and faculty support and training via the Educational Services team, to parent support via our customer service divisions throughout China.
Our Student Ambassador service offers our students the ability to communicate with someone that they can easily connect to; someone that has been through the same or similar experiences that they are going and will go through during their time at school and in the U.S.. Whether it be cultural differences and misunderstandings, culture shock, issues integrating into the school community and living in the U.S., our aim is to simply offer a helping hand and a friendly, familiar voice. With that being said, it is important to note that the Student Ambassadors are not counselors or therapists and will not act or represent themselves as such.
School – Natural Parent Liaising
Three W International, directly or together with trusted correspondents in-country, acts as the main point of contact between your school and the student's natural parents. This communication covers everything from test grades and extra-curricular activities to family functions as well as academic and behavioral concerns.
Medical InsuranceYou can have all of our students at your school enrolled in a comprehensive medical insurance plan available for international students.
Coming to a new country for school can be quite the cultural transition. Check out our student orientation videos for more information on making the transition for incoming international students an easy one!
