It is important 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 can take out our own StudyCare Insurance Plus policy, you can provide proof of adequate cover when confirming your place. The StudyCare Insurance Plus policy covers loss of personal possessions, and provides health and medical insurance. Please let your admissions advisor know if you wish to purchase our StudyCare Insurance Plus.

StudyCare has been designed specifically to offer international students comprehensive protection and support during their studies at the International Study Centre. The insurance covers you until the end of your course. Learn more about StudyCare Insurance Plus.
