Why is international health insurance essential when studying overseas?

  • Moving overseas to study.. 
    Rest assured that should you fall ill you'll have access to the best private care to ensure you get the treatment you need. 

  • Continued episodes of tonsillitis were affecting studies. Quick access to a private specialist doctor allowed studies to resume without delay 
    Approximate costs £245/$320/€270

  • The pressures of university can be tough. 
    Don’t miss any valuable study time by falling ill- get the treament you need quickly and at a hospital of your choice.

  • A university ski trip could have ended badly following a fall on the slopes. An A&E visit and x-rays were all covered and luckily no break to the ankle
    Approximate costs £320/$420/€350
