Travel Insurance

Students on Monash-affiliated international programs are provided complimentary travel insurance by Liberty International Underwriters for up to 365 days. Under this policy, travellers will also receive access to 24/7 emergency assistance provided by Global 24 Emergency Assistance and limited coverage for personal travel days.

You will automatically be provided coverage once Monash Abroad has approved your application in the Monash Abroad Portal (status will be “Committed” for most program types).

  • Coverage includes access to a limited number of personal travel days. Please check the table below for advice on the number of personal travel days eligible for coverage by program.

  • If you have a pre-existing health or mental health condition we recommend that obtain a fit-to-travel certificate from your doctor.
  • There is no coverage for university-affiliated domestic travel.
  • Review full policy details before you book travel and depart for your program
