Student Placement Insurance
The University provides insurance coverage for its students who participate in approved work experience and placements.
Cover is provided on the condition that there is a signed agreement in place between the student, the host organisation and the University prior to the commencement of the placement.
The University's insurance cover does not extend to students working in paid employment.
