Student Welfare

Fee Protection

Elite uses the Public Trust for fee protection. This ensures any unused fees are available in the unlikely event of insolvency, regulatory closure or withdrawal of accreditation of the school. This is an NZQA approved method of fee protection. For further information visit the Public Trust website.

Eligibility for Health Services

Most international students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand. If you receive medical treatment during your visit, you may be liable for the full costs of that treatment. Full details on entitlements to publicly funded health services are available through the Ministry of Health.

Accident Insurance

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.

Medical and Travel Insurance

International students (including group students) must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance while in New Zealand. Please contact our international team for more information on the options we provide through our partner Southern Cross.
