Europ Assistance Student policy

The world is at your feet. And you have only one desire: to get out there and explore. Which means you run some additional risks. Because what might be a minor problem here... can get completely out of hand in another country. So make sure you have the best assistance available when you are abroad.

What is a Student policy?

The ideal protection if you are going to study abroad, including extensive medical cover with reimbursement of medical expenses up to EUR 250,000 and tuition fees if you have to break off your studies for health reasons … not forgetting third-party liability insurance.


  • Peace of mind: start your studies abroad with no worries; Europ Assistance can help anywhere in the world, 24/7.
  • Comprehensive coverage of medical expenses and other costs, which may be quite high, particularly abroad.
  • Cover against breaking off your studies: cover of your tuition fees up to EUR 12,500.
