The University travel insurance provides very wide cover for staff and postgraduate students while travelling abroad. Cover includes unlimited medical expenses, medical repatriation, loss of personal belongings, loss of University equipment, travel cancellation, alteration and delay.

The University is not currently permitting international travel for work or study purposes. This is to protect staff and students from an increased risk of exposure, and to limit as far as possible the ongoing transmission of Covid-19. 

In addition, due to the Government directive advising not to travel, and the known risks associated with the virus, we are currently unable to obtain cancellation/curtailment cover for international travel

These are unprecedented times, and we aim to provide a normal service as soon as we are able to do so.

When supervising a group, it is important that you share your risk assessment with the other members.
