Medical and Travel Insurance
All International students enrolling with Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) (including group students) MUST have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance while in New Zealand. Your insurance must cover you from the beginning of your studies until at least the expiry date of your student visa. This is a New Zealand Government requirement as outlined in the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students www.nzqa.govt.nz/assets/Providers-and-partners/Code-of-Practice/tertiary-guidelines-code-of-practice.pdf and under Immigration New Zealand www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas policy.
You will be automatically enrolled into the Wintec Insurance scheme and a policy charge will be added to your tuition fees invoice at your enrolment. Details of the Wintec Insurance scheme may be found here. Students who have opted to purchase an alternative approved policy will have this charge removed when you have presented your policy to Wintec at the Student Enrolment and Information Centre.
