International and New Zealand citizens in Australia as winter research scholars, are encouraged to have a travel insurance policy before they arrive in Australia. Medical and hospital insurance associated with travel insurance can be arranged before leaving home, or obtained from Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) after arrival in Brisbane. Proof of cover may be required.

Domestic students who are required to travel to Brisbane to participate in the program are advised to take out an appropriate travel insurance policy to be covered against any travel risks. All UQ undergraduate research scholars should note that they will only be covered by the University’s public liability insurance to the extent that an accident occurs at the University for which the University is at fault.
