Are you just about to start university? Here are some things you may want to consider self-insuring, to protect yourself from any financial setbacks. 

College students have their fair share of worries, from paying tuition fees and working out their busy schedules to studying for exams. With all this on your mind, it’s no wonder why insurance gets put on the back-burner.

However, investing in certain types of insurance including health and travel insurance, and valuable item insurance:

  • gives you peace of mind
  • provides financial protection in case of any stolen valuables, unexpected injuries, and more.
  • alleviates the risk factor in your life

How It Works



3 Types of Insurance All University Students Need

The anticipation of new experiences can sometimes lead to important details falling through the cracks, but insurance, whether it’s for health or travel, should not be one of them. Here are the 3 types of insurance that all students need:

1. Health Insurance

With the rising costs of health insurance and the high possibility of unexpected illnesses, insuring the quality of your health as a student is not an item that should be overlooked, but an extremely necessary factor to consider.

Creating a Besure pool with your friends to successfully self-insure against any illness or injury can have many benefits, including:

  • keeps you healthy on campus
  • helps you save money in case of an unexpected injury or accident
  • protects you against some of the most contagious and common illnesses found on campus including cold & flu, stress, conjunctivitis, and more
  • gives you the financial peace of mind knowing you can visit a doctor or hospital and get yourself checked out without any worry or hassle

TIP: Although in the beginning, health insurance can seem like just another monthly bill, what you are paying for is a long-term safeguard and future relief for any medical incidents that may occur.

2. Valuable Items Insurance

Today, students are walking around with at least $2000 worth of valuable items including laptops, tablets, and smartphones, which is why it’s no great surprise that they’re a prime target for crime, especially when living in a shared house or university halls.

At Besure, you can create pools for your valuable items and successfully self-insure many different types of things, including your:

  • laptop
  • smartphone
  • tablet
  • TV
  • game consoles
  • clothes
  • jewellery

Tip: If you are heading to university with an armful of gadgets, then it is absolutely crucial that you take the adequate steps to protect all your possessions.


Items You Can Protect



3. Travel Insurance

Today, more and more students are jetting off for an adventure any chance they get, whether it’s a weekend holiday or backpacking their way around the world. If you are a travelling student, you’ll no doubt have saved every penny for your plane/bus tickets, but have you thought about travel insurance?

While it may seem like a burdensome formality, travel insurance can end up saving you hundreds of dollars if you find yourself in a sticky situation.

When creating a Besure pool for travel, make sure to include the following things in your policy:

  • any medical treatment you might need if you suddenly fall ill or have an accident
  • repatriation back to Canada if necessary
  • coverage for any flight/bus delays or cancellations
  • loss or theft of your personal possessions (eg. suitcase, smartphone, holiday cash)
