Under the rules of the NZQA Education Code of Practice (2016), all international students studying at Languages International have to have appropriate travel and medical insurance. Appropriate insurance means:
- A policy that covers you during your travel to New Zealand, your whole stay here and your travel back to your home country.
- An insurer with a credit rating no lower than ‘A’ from Standard and Poors or B+ from A M Best, and which is able to provide services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
- Cover that includes at least the following types and limits:
|Events||Cover limits (New Zealand dollars)|
|Medical & Related Expenses (including Evacuation, Repatriation & Cancellation)||Unlimited|
|Luggage & Personal Effects||$15,000|
|Missed Transport Connection||$25,000|
|Death or Disablement by Injury||$50,000|
|Kidnap & Ransom||$250,000|
|Rental Vehicle Excess||$5,000|
If you are not sure about the insurance you can buy in your country, we strongly recommend that you buy your insurance policy through Languages International. Our standard student insurance is Uni-Care’s NZ Student Plan, a policy which fully complies with all the NZQA rules.
