7 Insurance The Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice requires all international students to have appropriate health and travel insurance during their period of study. The Studentsafe Inbound University policy from Allianz Global Assistance NZ Ltd. is our preferred insurance policy for international students. All enrolled international students will automatically be charged the Studentsafe Inbound University insurance premium. Insurance is compulsory and you must pay this fee unless the University approves the use of an alternative insurance provider. You must have approved insurance for the duration of your study, regardless of the type of visa you have. Please review the University of Auckland websit e for further information.
