Insurance Requirements

All international students enrolled at Bow High School are required to have appropriate medical and travel insurance. This may be a group or individual policy. The insurance policy should be in place at the time the student takes up his or her “offer of place” and before they leave their home. The International coordinator will verify all policies prior to students commencing their studies. 

Bow High School has recommended insurers. If this insurer is not used then the school must be satisfied that the medical and travel insurance meets its requirements as listed below. If insurance is organised through the school then the school is able to help students with any insurance claims.

Students are required to supply an English translated copy of the insurance policy
and evidence of its currency. This will be filed by the International coordinator and will be monitored annually.

Policy requirements:

Where  a student has separate travel and medical insurance, the travel insurance should include:
a) Loss of baggage and other personal effects
b) Accident and injury
c) Disruption to travel plans
d) The cost of medical care in any “stopover” countries

Combined medical and travel insurance should:
a) Commence when leaving home for the airport, while in transit and within the United States or trips to other destinations and holidays back to their home country.
b) Contain high sums insured (from $1,000,000 to unlimited cover, full medical, optical and dental cover plus a low excess)
c) Include emergency evacuation and repatriation, personal effects, and accompanying relative cover
d) Ensure personal effects are covered and personal liability can be met
e) Address continuation should a student have to interrupt their studies

In assessing the validity of insurance cover from providers outside the recommended insurers, the school will consider:

a) Whether the insurer is a reputable and established experience in the travel insurance business, and has an excellent credit rating.

b) If the insurer is able to provide emergency 24-hour, 7 day a week cover.

c) If students are able to have a “certificate of currency” an policy wording stating that the student has purchased the cover for the duration of the planned period of study.
