ACCIDENTAL AND TRAVEL INSURANCE

Students are insured inside the university campus and covered for any accidents as per the university’s insurance policy. With regard to travel insurance, however, students should apply for additional insurance from any reputable travel agency as the university’s health insurance policy covers students within the UAE only.
