Once your request has been approved, you will receive an email confirming your travel dates and destination(s), including an Emergency Assistance Card with a policy number and contact details in case you need to make a claim. There is nothing else you need to do.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fully covered for the whole period you will be away.
Note - Some countries and/or overseas institutions may require students going on exchange, placements, internships, etc, to obtain in-country health or other insurances. The University’s travel insurance will not override this requirement, and you must obtain the required in-country insurance before you leave Australia.
