All students undertaking travel as part of their studies must complete the Travel Notification Form. You will need to have confirmed your proposed departure and return date before completing the form (these can be amended later).
After you have submitted the form, it will be reviewed by LSE's Health and Safety team. Once approved, you will receive confirmation via email.
LSE Travel Insurance:
By completing the mandatory Travel Notification Form, you will automatically be covered under LSE's Travel Insurance policy.
- The insurance will cover you for losses sustained during your period of cover, including against lost, stolen, and accidentally damaged property.
- It will also cover you for medical emergencies. However, please note that this is not comprehensive medical cover, and therefore does not necessarily fulfil your host institutions health insurance requirements.
- The insurance will not cover flight cancellations or curtailments as a result of COVID-19. Nor will the policy cover the costs associated with mandatory quarantining or COVID-19 testing.
- The insurance will not cover travel that is taken outside the scope of your exchange programme.
For further details visit the LSE Travel Insurance webpage and contact the Health and Safety Team if you have any questions.
You are strongly encouraged to procure your own travel insurance, particularly if you intend to travel elsewhere within Spain or the EU during the year as this is not covered under LSE’s policy.
Similarly, you may wish to insure particular high value items you will be travelling with such as your phone or laptop as these may not be covered under some travel insurance schemes.
