Insurance

All international students should 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 purchase our own StudyCare Insurance Plus policy by confirming in their application, or you can provide proof of adequate cover when confirming your place. StudyCare has been designed specifically to offer international students comprehensive protection and support while studying at the International Study Centre. The StudyCare Insurance Plus policy covers loss of personal possessions and health and medical insurance. Please let your admissions advisor know if you wish to purchase our StudyCare Insurance Plus. The insurance covers you until the end of your course.
