Health and Travel Insurance
The Code of Practice for International Students states:
Most students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand unless they are:
● A resident or citizen of Australia; or
● A national of the United Kingdom in New Zealand: or
● The holder of a temporary permit that is valid for two years or more
If you do not belong to one of these categories and you receive medical treatment during your visit, you will be liable for the full cost of the treatment. Therefore, all students must have Health and Travel Insurance for the duration of their stay in New Zealand.
We recommend Uni Care and further information and application forms are available on their website www.uni-care.org
Evidence of the insurance policy will be asked for on enrolment.
Your insurance policy must include fee protection. The Board of Trustees will also undertake to keep sufficient funds in reserve to refund the unspent portion of fees, in line with the Refund Policy, or should the school be unable to continue the programme.
