Insurance requirements for Student Exchange

Do I need to purchase insurance for my Student Exchange period?

The UWA Corporate Travel Policy covers all UWA students studying overseas on a recognised exchange program for the duration of their formal study period. Keep in mind that you must book your flights via UWA's preferred travel providers and record your travel in Concur to be eligible for insurance.

Students who are undertaking any private travel outside of their Host University city/town at any time during their exchange will need to be covered by additional personal insurance.

Any additional insurance must be purchased before leaving Australia. It is recommended you purchase any additional insurance from the University’s insurance provider. Chartis offer considerable discounts to Student Exchange participants.

You are also advised to read the UWA Corporate Insurance Policy.
