International students must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance while studying in New Zealand. The College is willing to organise medical insurance through either Southern Cross Healthcare or Uni-Care (a division of Crombie Lockwood New Zealand) at a cost of approximately $500.

If you receive medical treatment during your visit, you may be liable for the full costs of that treatment. Full details on entitlements to publicly-funded health services are available through the Ministry of Health and can be viewed here, The Accident Compensation Corporation provided accident insurance for all New Zealand citizens, residents and temporary visitors to New Zealand, but you may still be liable for all other medical and related costs.
