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
Unique New Zealand believes very strongly in protecting all monies received from students until such time as the students have completed their courses. In order to do this all students must comply with the following conditions:
- All students enrolling at Unique New Zealand will be sent a Public Trust Student Fee Trust Account Application Form which must be signed by the student (or student’s parent/legal guardian if the student is under 18 years) and returned to Unique New Zealand.
- If a signed Public Trust Application Form is not received and a student is Under 18 years old then by signing the enrolment form the student’s parent/legal guardian agrees to appoint Unique as their agent to sign the Public Trust Application Form on their behalf.
