All international students should have accidental and medical insurance for the duration of their time in the UK. This will make you feel more secure because not having a proper protection can be extremely difficult and expensive.

You can take out our own StudyCare Insurance Plus policy or alternative cover with a third party. The StudyCare Insurance Plus policy covers loss of personal possessions as well as providing health and medical insurance. It is specifically designed for international students’ needs while studying abroad, and covers you until the end of your course.

Please let your admissions advisor know if you would like to buy our StudyCare Insurance Plus.


From September 1st 2019, all students under the age of 18 at the start of their course will receive our guardianship service free of charge. A guardian will support you during your time in the UK until you turn 18. More information will be provided after you apply.
