Study Abroad Insurance
One thing that students might not think about while they are preparing to study abroad is insurance.
Insurance is strongly recommended and required in many locations for abroad travelers. While the insurance will cover basic things, it is highly helpful for the important things it will also cover. Examples of such important things include an emergency room visit or god forbid – a flight home for your deceased body.
Students don’t want to worry about such things happening – I know I didn’t. Study abroad insurance is bought kind of like a warranty for your computer – you have it just in case you need it and hope that you aren’t in need of it when you didn’t buy it!
The International Student Blog did a short post on the need for insurance while being a student abroad – however, it has two links that students (and parents) of all abroad locations might find an interest in reading!
