February 01 2013

Before sending your child to a foreign land, a variety of arrangements needs to be made to ensure that all the essential documents, daily requirements, and funds are in place. All this planning is essential to ensure a smooth transition for your child when he stays away from home, in a new, foreign country. You can further safeguard his stay and his academic year by buying a student insurance policy.

Insurance policy is made mandatory by most universities abroad and it is wise to buy a student medical insurance policy that is in accordance with the university guidelines.
