It is a requirement under the New Zealand Government's The Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 that all international students have appropriate travel and medical insurance for the duration of their studies.

All international students will be charged for the Studentsafe policy, unless you have been in contact with the International Office at the University of Otago six weeks before the start of the semester about your alternative insurance policy and you have been advised that it’s compliant.
