Studying in an international university is great, but studying in an international university in a foreign country is even greater. As a student, you get to meet so many people from all lifestyles and before you leave the foreign country, you will have gained more than you bargained for. However, all this is possible only if you have health insurance for international students. With this insurance cover, you will have peace of mind. You can rest assured that even if you get sick or have an accident and you stay in the hospital or even where you reside, your medical expenses are covered.

International student insurance takes care of the student’s health plans comprehensively and there are various insurance plans that everybody can afford. The student is covered on all medical conditions that may arise when he/she is in the foreign country for study. Before he buys the insurance cover, he should discuss with the insurance provider any preexisting conditions so that they know whether they will be covered.

If the student gets pregnant in the course of her study, depending on the international student insurance cover that she bought, the maternity costs will be covered. There is emergency assistance if the student gets hurt in an accident or a condition that he has becomes worse. This service is available 24 hours a day and seven days per week. If the student needs to be repatriated to his country for specialized healthcare, the repatriation charges are covered. In the event that the student passes on, the remains are repatriated to his or her country and all the services and travel plans for the body will be covered.
