We strongly advise all those planning to attend Capital School of English to obtain Travel Insurance before coming to the U.K.
Travel Insurance is designed to make sure you never need to worry about any unexpected medical or legal expenses when travelling. Ideally you will never use it. Strange, but true.
Here at Capital School of English you have the choice when you enrol if you would like to purchase travel insurance. We are able to offer Studentguard+ travel/health insurance for all those attending the school.
In your own country you may be entitled to free or some form of healthcare/legal aid as a resident of that country. When you travel to other countries, you are not official residents and therefore are not entitled to the same forms of healthcare or legal aid. Instead you will be expected to pay for some or all of the care given to you. This situation is true in the UK. Even EU residents need to check what they are entitled to as the amount on offer may be significantly different from their own country. Travel Insurance is simple – it pays your medical or legal expenses if you get sick or have an accident.
If you do not have Travel Insurance you will be required to pay any medical or legal expenses personally.
Studentguard+ covers a wide range of situations. The most common are having to go to hospital or the dentist. Many of our students want to visit other parts of Europe during their stay and included within Studentguard+ is up to 14 days of insurance cover within other parts of Europe.
For more information about what is/isn’t covered please read “Summary of Studentguard+ Policy”.
Studentguard+ insurance costs £5.65 per week.
If, unfortunately you go into hospital here in the U.K. you will receive a bill for the cost of your visit. You need to contact your insurer and tell them the situation. They will then tell you what you need to do – this will require you to pay for the medical care and the travel insurer to give you the money back later (reimburse you).
The first £50 of any claim is payable by the student. For example: If you go to see a doctor the charge is £40.00 and medicine £8.99. You cannot claim this on the insurance as it’s under £50.00.
1) The insured person is not covered:
a) For any expenses incurred where a journey is booked or undertaken against the advice of a Qualified Medical Practitioner.
b) Where the purpose of the journey is to receive medical treatment or advice.
2) Anyone travelling with a medical condition must have:
a) A letter with the name and telephone number of their Qualified Medical Practitioner within their country of residence. The letter must state the individual is fit to travel and has enough prescribed medication for the entire length of study* within the U.K.
*Requiring additional prescribed medication within the U.K. can result in large medical bills between a student and the National Health Service (NHS) or another private medical provider in the U.K.
