Insurance Policies for International Students

To enrol as an international student at the University of Waikato, you must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance to cover the length of your study visa in New Zealand.

In your Enrolment Agreement, we automatically include a charge for the Studentsafe Inbound University policy (our preferred provider). If you would prefer to move forward with an alternative approved policy you will just need to provide a copy of the cover to the University at least two weeks before your study begins. The fee for the Studentsafe Inbound University policy will then be reversed.
