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.
If we assess that you have exceeded the allowed limits (see Am I eligible for cover? ), we will update your travel dates to reflect the period for which you are covered and this will be set out on the email you will receive from us. You will need to purchase additional cover for the remaining component of the trip by completing the Additional Top Up Insurance form.
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.
