Policy

Brief description of cover

Public Liability

This provides protection for personal injury or damage to third parties.

It does not cover anything affecting you personally.

Personal Accident

 

This policy covers major injuries such as loss of limbs. It does not cover sickness or minor injury. It is not a life insurance policy.

You are not covered while travelling to your destination and returning home. You are not covered for personal activities like shopping.

Professional Indemnity

This policy covers unintended breaches of your duties by bad advice/ services.

An important condition is that the services and/or advice must be signed off by qualified person before being provided to a third party.

International Travel

 

 

Cover is available for students traveling outside their country of residence on USP-approved activities. Students are NOT automatically covered by this policy for any USP approved activity. The following procedures apply:

Students must complete the required forms.

They then need to arrange confirmation from the Risk and Insurance Unit they are eligible for cover.

Students must liaise with the relevant Faculty member to get the forms signed off.

Students are responsible for ensuring they have adequate cover for their approved activity. Where students think the available cover may not be suitable, the Risk and Insurance Unit must be advised.
