University of Cambridge Insurance
Welcome to the Insurance Section
We are responsible for overseeing all insurance matters relating to the University and its staff and students. We issue the University’s insurance policy, published in the Cambridge University Reporter, which offers comprehensive advice to staff on all insurance matters that may affect them during the course of their work. Our team is also able to provide specialist advice on particular issues to University institutions and to individuals.
The University provides insurance for employees who are required to travel overseas for business and also for members of supervised departmental field trips. We provide information about this scheme and offer guidance on the application process.
Application Process for Employees
Employees of the University of Cambridge should use this system to declare their travel plans. Once you have entered the required data the system will automatically issue you with a letter from the University Insurance Manager confirming that you have insurance for your trip. You should keep the letter of confirmation of insurance in a safe place as it contains important information you will need in the event of a claim. You may also be asked to provide confirmation of travel insurance when entering the country you intend to visit or when applying for a visa.
During the application process you will be asked to provide:
- Department/division or subsidiary company name
- Your payroll number (from your current wage slip)
- The countries to be visited
- The dates of your journey
- The purpose of your journey
- Confirmation of good health and that where you have a medical condition your doctor has agreed to the trip.
Employees of the University of Cambridge should use this system to declare their travel plans. Once you have entered the required data the system will issue confirmation of insurance, an outline of the main policy benefits and exclusions and details for the FirstAssist Emergency Service
