It is exciting to pursue studies in a new country. Besides, world-class education, the new country gives you a chance to explore and experience different cultures, people and lifestyle. However, there is more to travelling abroad for studies than just your travel itinerary, accommodation and plans for a part-time job. Remember, you will be in a new country with limited resources. While you focus on making the most of the opportunity, be fully prepared for something unforeseen as well. If something goes wrong, medical expenses or hospitalisation can drain your finances. The cost of medication and healthcare is huge in some countries and not having a student travel insurance policy can do major damages to your financial planning.
