Wider wellbeing: Beyond traditional student insurance

As part of our medical assistance, mental health support and legal cover, we’re also able to provide access to a variety of specialist helplines to help students with their wider wellbeing. We're committed to offering a service beyond insurance, through pro-active support management to ensure student life is as enjoyable as possible.

Medical assistance, mental health and counselling support

This cover includes two services. The first is a 24/7 365 days a year GP service which provides medical assistance and supports mental health. Each student will have access to a private GP 24 hours a day via multiple channels, including a 24/7 365 telephone helpline to ensure a human connection, an app that provides instant messenger access to a doctor, or online face to face consultations. It offers the ability to have access in any country, with unlimited consultations. The second service is a confidential and secure helpline that also offers a unique, tailored experience for each student’s needs with a dedicated healthcare professional throughout, for as long as required. This is provided by experienced medically trained nurses, including specialist mental health nurses, who offer long-term practical advice and emotional support on a wide range of issues. This service is available 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.

Legal advice helpline

Our legal services provide advice across a wide range of legal issues as follows: Accommodation assistance, employment, consumer disputes, social media defamation, identity theft, personal injury, criminal prosecution defence, bicycle uninsured loss recovery and consular travel assistance. This helpline is available 24 hours a day, and there is access to online support tools, such as template letters for landlord or employer disputes. Students can also access the My Legal Buddy portal, which provides intuitive and logic-based advice, tailoring documents, information and recommendations.

Debt counselling advice helpline

Sometimes students may find themselves in a situation where they are no longer able to keep up with various payments and find themselves in debt.
