What is study abroad insurance for students?

Studying abroad can be a great opportunity to learn about a new culture, pick up a new language or just find out more about a different way of life. But what if something goes wrong while you’re away? If you suffer an injury that requires medical attention or your laptop is stolen, it can be difficult to know where to turn – especially as it may be the first time you’ve travelled abroad alone. Our study abroad insurance for students is designed to protect you from unexpected occurrences when you're studying outside of the United Kingdom. We’ll cover you for a range of unforeseen events, including loss or damage of contents and valuables, medical expenses and course fees should you have to cancel your trip. What’s more, we'll make it easy to claim and give you all the support you need so you can focus on your studies.
