Accident Insurance and Liability Insurance

Gakkensai (Personal Accident Insurance for Students Pursuing Education and Research) provides necessary benefits in the event that you suffer accidental injury while pursuing curricular activities, participating in university events, while in university facilities, and while pursuing extracurricular activities (club activities).


Gakkenbai (Student General Liability Insurance) provides insurance coverage should you become legally obligated to pay damages in the event that you injure someone or damage their property, while attending (or commuting to/from) curricular activities, school events, and extracurricular activities such as volunteer work etc. Both types of insurance are provided by Japan Educational Exchanges and Services (administered by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology). For details, please see the guides on Personal Accident Insurance for Students Pursuing Education and Research and Supplementary Personal Liability Insurance for Students.  This insurance is necessary to protect you from disasters/accidents and allow you to safely pursue student activities. Therefore, Tohoku University requires that all students enroll in both of the above types of insurance.
