The Accident Compensation Corporation provides 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. Further information can be viewed on the ACC website at www.acc.co.nz.
MEDICAL AND TRAVEL INSURANCE
International students (including group students) must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance while in New Zealand.

For any student who enrolls in a course of three months or longer, all tuition fee payment (after deducting up to 25% of the payment for costs incurred) will be refunded if the student withdraws within the first 10 working days after the first day the student is required to be at UUNZ to commence the programme of studies enrolled in. After this, all fees paid are non-refundable Students withdrawing within one month prior to the start of the programme will also be entitled to a refund less a deduction of NZ$500 or 10% Which ever is lesser, for costs incurred. Full information is available on the Student handbook and here.
