How to Use

Members buying insurance for colleges must undertake a further competition to select a provider considering your own college insurance requirements. Please read the user guide for full details, guidance and template documentation.

For a 1st August renewal date you should ideally start the process in January/February and issue the completed questionnaire to the providers around March/April to allow adequate time for providers to respond.
