Travel Insurance

Students who travel overseas on official University activities are covered by the UoN corporate travel policy. Approved activities can include student exchange, professional placement or other course-related activities.
Please note this cover is limited. You should find out what it doesn't cover before you go and, if needed, organise additional personal travel insurance. The Smartraveller website provides excellent information on why you should have insurance and a Guide to buying travel insurance.
