You may have questions about travel insurance and medical coverage while abroad. Below, we explain our group travel insurance policy with Endsleigh with links to the most up to date policy documents and information on making a claim. We also share advice on what to do if you're not covered by Endsleigh.



FIE is an appointed representative of Endsleigh Insurance Services Limited, which is authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. FIE students are covered by an Endsleigh Travel Insurance group policy, unless this coverage has been waived by your home institution. If you’re unsure whether your institution is covered, please check with your study abroad advisor. 


The below 2020 policy documents are applicable to students on Spring and Winter 2021 programs:

  1. 2020 Insurance Summary
  2. 2020 Statement of Insurance
  3. 2020 Policy Wording
  4. 2020 Additional Activity Coverage


The below 2021 policy documents are applicable to students on Summer and Fall 2021 programs:

The below Privacy Policy is applicable to students on all programs.


You must read all of the above policy documents carefully before the start of your program. We also recommend saving copies of the policy documents and the Endsleigh numbers to your phone. After reading the documents, you may find that you need more comprehensive coverage (e.g. if you need coverage for a pre-exisiting condition or for a sport or activity that isn't already covered). Should you need further coverage, you'll find some guidance in the ‘Not Covered by Endsleigh’ section below.

All FIE students are required to be covered by some form of medical insurance, either through their home institution or through FIE’s Endsleigh group policy. Check with your study abroad advisor for more information on insurance issued by your home institution. Along with medical coverage, you should also ensure that you have appropriate coverage for other circumstances such as loss of personal possessions.
