You must be covered by comprehensive travel insurance (incorporating medical insurance, medical evacuation and repatriation) for the entire period of overseas study and travel.
By participating in the UOW International Exchange Program you will be automatically covered by the University of Wollongong's comprehensive travel insurance policy for the first 6 months (180 days) of your exchange. If you will be away for more than 180 days, it is your responsibility to arrange and pay for additional coverage through the University's insurance provider.
Further insurance details, including a certificate of cover, will be provided to students at the compulsory final Pre-Departure Session.
