Overseas Travel Insurance and Emergency Assistance

The latest notice and information with the change of Academic Calendar and the Campus Shutdown are available on News at the keio.jp Portal. Be sure to check them.

In the current state of the world, it is important to have local information and to be prepared to arrange for medical care and emergency transportation in the event that you are struck by a terrorist attack or large-scale natural disaster overseas. Furthermore, if you get sick or injured outside Japan, you may incur large bills for medical treatment and transportation, and claiming or collecting compensation in an accident in which you were the victim can be difficult.

Keio University requires students participating in courses overseas to enroll in a specific overseas travel insurance, which includes emergency assistance. Examples of courses held overseas are Study Abroad Courses for Language Communication Courses, Special Research Projects, and Fieldwork etc.

The type of overseas travel insurance and emergency assistance that you are required to enroll in depends on whether you participate in 1. Study Abroad Courses for Language Communication Courses and Special Research Projects (held overseas), or 2. Fieldwork Courses.Complete the enrollment process by following the instructions for the course you will participate in.
