When you go abroad you have to arrange a few important aspects, like insurance. Please read this text carefully to understand what you need to arrange before your mobility takes place.
Already have insurance?
Please note that regular travel insurance doesn't provide coverage for study trips in most cases. Also they usually only provide coverage for a limited period abroad. You should check with your current provider what they can cover before your mobility starts.
A national health insurance doesn't always provide complete coverage for your medical costs when you're abroad.
What insurance should I purchase?
Most important coverages you need when you go abroad are medical costs, liability (if you damage someone else's property) and repatriation (if you need to come home after an accident). You can also purchase insurance cover for your luggage or other personal items.
Do I have to arrange all of this myself?
You can search for a company that provide these insurances. However we found a partner that provides a complete student package that includes all of these coverages and more. You can calculate your premium and apply online for the insurance at https://studentsinsured.com/en/Cardiffmet.
