EPS Department recommends students and researchers to purchase insurance dependng on the nature of academic and research activities in addition to “Personal Accident Insurance for Student Pursuing Education and Research (Gakkensai)“.
“Personal Accident Insurance for Student Pursuing Education and Research (Gakkensai)” and “Liability Insurance coupled with “Gakkensai”” does not cover sickness and other private life accidents. To have a broader coverage for private life in general, “Student Comprehensive Mutual Insurance” which covers private activities, trips and other for 24 hours, is recommended.
Insurance for all students, research students and JSPS Research Fellows (in Japan).
The University of Tokyo pays the insurance premiums and all students, research students and JSPS Research Fellows (excluding invited foreign researchers*) are covered by Personal Accident Insurance for Students Pursuing Education and Research (Gakkensai).
This insurance pays for injuries sustained by subscribers themselves during university research and educational activities.
The insurance covers not only lectures, experiments and exercises on campus, but also extra-curricular activities, tours, fieldwork related to graduation, master’s and dissertation theses, and during commuting to and from school.
Insurance taken out by members of the Faculty of Science and Graduate School of Science.
At the Faculty of Science and the Graduate School of Science, from 1 April 2022, the department pays the insurance premiums for those covered by the university’s GAKKENSAI membership, and they are now covered by the Student Education and Research Liability Insurance (GAKKENSAI), which is one of the supplementary indemnities of the GAKKENSAI.
This insurance pays for bodily injury and property damage during university research and educational activities.
