Student Cover is offered subject to the following terms and conditions:

We will not cover any liability arising out of or in connection with any Treatment carried out by You where You are not qualified in the Treatment being undertaken except:


  • under the direct supervision of a Qualified Person or
  • for students case study work,
  • or for other work prior to qualification being obtained, if deemed ready or competent to do so by Your school or tutor


providing that;


  • You do not practise outside the scope of what You have been taught and that regular supervision, ongoing case consultation and review for case studies is in place;
  • You are to declare to any person prior to offering Treatment that You are not qualified;
  • You may charge a fee if appropriate, provided this is allowed by the tutor or school in question and that it is a modest amount and evidently lower than an experienced and qualified professional would normally charge


Once qualified you can upgrade straight away to one of our Self-employed policies and benefit from the full cover available. You can still continue to study under the new policy as all our self-employed policies offer Case Study cover as standard.

For Example - You would purchase our Student policy while you study for an NVQ 2 Beauty course then once qualified our Self-employed Individual Beauty policy will provide you with full cover for your NVQ 2 treatments (subject to them appearing on our list of treatments covered) and continue to cover your Student and Case Study cover while you work towards your NVQ 3 qualification.


As well as student beauty therapy insurance, our customers can benefit from mobile beauty insurance, beauty therapy insurance,
and cover for salons.
