Comprehensive Coverage for Your Summer School Journey

Medical and Travel Insurance Coverage

  • Q: Will I be covered by medical/travel insurance?
  • A: Yes, all our students studying in the UK during their Oxford Summer Courses summer school are covered under a travel insurance policy included in your course fee. This insurance ensures that if anything unexpected happens and reasonably prevents you from attending your summer school course, you will be able to make a cancellation claim. You can contact us via email for a claim form. However, please note that if you are requesting a refund based on a visa refusal for your Oxford Summer Courses summer school, you will not be able to make an insurance claim, and our cancellation policy will apply as per our Terms and Conditions.

Understanding Your Insurance Coverage

Policy Details and Terms

Your travel insurance policy, a part of your course fee, offers protection in case unforeseen circumstances prevent you from attending your summer school. For specific policy details and our comprehensive Terms and Conditions, please refer to the provided documents related to your summer school.

Making a Cancellation Claim

In the event of an unexpected occurrence, you have the option to make a cancellation claim. Simply contact us via email to request a claim form.

Visa Refusal and Cancellation Policy

If you’re seeking a refund due to a visa refusal for your Oxford Summer Courses summer school, please be aware that insurance claims may not be applicable. In such cases, our cancellation policy, as outlined in our Terms and Conditions, will be enforced.
