It is compulsory for all international students coming to study in New Zealand to be covered by health insurance. STB Pacific’s high school program includes in the price comprehensive health insurance to protect our students – Southern Cross Travel Insurance. Please see more details about their coverage and how to use the insurance on their website: www.internationalstudent.co.nz
The insurance policy card will be given to the students when they arrive in Auckland and our team of coordinators will assist the students on how to claim their expenses back and on how to use the insurance properly.
