Travel Insurance

Students who participate in outbound international programs must refer to the UNSW Travel Insurance Policy.

If covered by the university policy, it's important you check your insurance cover before you leave Australia. We strongly recommend you arrange additional travel coverage through a private insurance provider if this does not cover all your needs. It is essential you have adequate insurance cover while you are travelling. See Smartraveller's guide to buying travel insurance and make sure you are covered!
