I am an International student wanting to find information on buying insurance

As an International student, it is mandatory that you are covered by an insurance policy for as long as your student visa is valid uptil.

If you arrange your own insurance, it must be approved by Unitec and provided to the International Insurance Office or emailed to insurance@unitec.ac.nz at least one week before the International Orientation date.

Unitec's preferred insurance provider is Southern Cross, in order to buy a policy from them, please contact the International office.

Students can also consider the following approved insurance policies :

  • Southern Cross International Student Policy MAX (Unitec's preferred insurer)
  • Uni-care NZ Student Plan
  • Marsh Student Safe Policy
  • Interglobal Studentcare Plus Policy 
  • Orbit Protect Prime Policy
