Studentsafe Inbound Learners
New Zealand is a great and safe place to study. We’re a friendly nation and have plenty to keep you entertained when you’re not studying. All international students studying in New Zealand are required, by the 'Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students', to have medical, travel and other types of insurance for the duration of their study.
Our Studentsafe Inbound Learners policy is designed for international students studying at a New Zealand tertiary institution that is not a university. If you are planning to study at one of our universities, see Studentsafe Inbound University.
If you have purchased a policy prior to 1 November 2019 and you are looking for your Policy Wording or have any queries please contact us on 0800 486 004.

Pre-existing Medical Conditions
The Studentsafe Inbound Learners policy does not automatically cover Pre-existing Medical Conditions. A Pre-existing Medical Condition is a medical or physical condition that you had before you enrolled in the plan and can extend to Pre-existing Medical Condition(s) you were aware of but did not seek treatment for. Cover can be arranged in certain circumstances by completing a Medical Risk Assessment Form. An additional premium will be charged if cover is approved.
