Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to study overseas.

Studying abroad, or even within New Zealand if you are a New Zealander, is an exciting adventure. But like all adventures, this comes with some level of risk. That’s why it’s important to make sure you have your medical and travel insurance under control. If you are coming to New Zealand, you’ll also need medical cover to qualify for an international student visa. Use the Policy Finder to narrow your policy search, or click on each policy to learn more about the policy and to get a quote.

Studying in New Zealand:
Luckily if you’re an international student who’s been accepted to study at a New Zealand University, your Studentsafe Inbound University policy is offered as part of your enrolment process. If you are not an international student or you are studying at a different educational provider, we can still provide you with a policy.

If you are currently residing in New Zealand and wishing to study overseas, you might be interested in our Studentsafe Outbound policy.

Escape the Kiwi winter – discovering the Pacific and Australia

Unless you’re really into skiing, winter in New Zealand isn’t really the most exciting time of year. It’s not cold enough for there to be pretty snow falling in the cities, but it’s still cold enough that you don’t want to spend time outside unless you have to. Instead of snow, we mostly get rain and wind. It’s certainly not terrible – but it does give you a good excuse to go somewhere sunny if you have the time and budge
