Insurance might be one of the last things on your mind but it is important to ensure you know what is and what is not covered when moving away.

It’s easy to underestimate the value of your gadgets, and we're not just talking about your laptop and phone. Items such as your clothes, hairdryers and other smaller gadgets, like Fitbits and watches can all add up.
That's a big wedge of money to lose out on should your belongings break, get lost or even stolen! Therefore, it's important to assess the value of what you want to bring before moving to uni so you can get your items covered by suitable student insurance.
