We believe that safety and enjoyment are equally important when studying with International House London. We therefore strongly recommend that you have adequate travel insurance in place before beginning your course.

International House London has partnered with Endsleigh to develop a bespoke insurance policy that is specifically designed for you while studying on one of our courses. We are working together to ensure you have adequate Insurance for your course while in the UK and to provide complete peace of mind.

If you are in the process of applying for a course or have already secured your place you may want to consider what level of insurance protection you have in place in case the worst were to happen. Unlike many policies this one covers the cost of your course if you were unable to continue with your studies.

Taking out your travel insurance at the time of booking your course is a really good idea as cover for pre-departure cancellation starts from the policy issue date. 

Without suitable travel insurance, you will not be able to recover your costs if you have to cancel your course for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident stopping you from travelling.
