Our International Student Travel Insurance product has been designed for international students studying a degree or other recognised qualification outside of their home country, with study arranged through an accredited college / university / language school.
This product is a single-trip travel insurance product to provide international students with financial protection and help for their travel to study. For example, cover following an accident or illness that requires medical attention or in the event of circumstances arising that might require a trip to be cancelled.
The International Student travel insurance product contains multiple sections of cover including: cancellation or curtailment, emergency medical and other related expenses, course fees protection, baggage, personal accident, and overseas legal expenses.
