Where should you start?
The best place to start is with the university or college in the UK. Some institutions will offer cover while the student is abroad, and if this the case, they’ll probably be offered it as part of the program initiation.
In this case it’s likely they’ll be offered cover for emergency medical expenses, lost baggage and other travel related mishaps.
As the cover offered by the colleges may be different, and the situation of each student in the recipient country is different, it is worth reading the details of the policy carefully.
For example, depending on where in the world the student is heading, you may wish to add additional covers or increase some of the maximum policy limits. If they’re working abroad will they have insurance to cover them in a work place situation as it’s unlikely that travel insurance alone will cover this?
It’s worth using our travel insurance comparison service to compare multiple policies all in one place. You can compare features and prices, to see which suits your needs the most.
