We strongly recommend that all international students have the protection of appropriate accident and medical insurance for the duration of their time in the UK. The consequences of being uninsured can be extremely difficult and expensive.

Students may either take out our own StudyCare insurance policy or alternative cover with a third party. The StudyCare insurance policy covers loss of personal possessions as well as providing health and medical insurance. Please let your admissions advisor know if you wish to purchase our StudyCare insurance. The insurance covers you until the end of your course.
