Insurance cover

Medical-legal insurance

Cover is compulsory for Overseas Elective students. Students who are not covered under agreements with their home school should purchase cover in their own country and send evidence of this with either the application form or acceptance of the elective offered. MPS in New Zealand may provide cover for visiting Medical students from some countries. Failure to provide Medical-legal insurance will result in the cancellation of the elective. Contact us for more details.

Personal and health insurance

Students must have personal health insurance whilst in New Zealand. Appropriate travel insurance is also recommended.
