Even if you are entitled to free NHS treatment whilst in the UK, you should consider taking out insurance which covers other medical-related costs. We also recommend students take out health insurance if you plan on travelling outside the UK while studying abroad. Take a look at the UKCISA website for more information about health insurance.
Make sure you know how to access health care in the UK before you arrive. Read our information about healthcare in the UK.
We strongly recommend you arrange travel insurance before you leave your home country to cover you throughout your studies in the UK. Lots of students choose to travel to other countries during vacation periods, so make sure your travel insurance covers you for worldwide travel.
Endsleigh Insurance was originally set up by the National Union of Students. They offer many different types of insurance policies for students including one for international students studying in the UK that may be of interest to you.
