Insurance for students on placements or work experience

The Deakin University insurance program provides insurance cover for Students during medical placement, community placement, practical placement, enterprise experience and work experience approved by the University.

Making sure you're covered

Students are deemed to be enrolled students at the University until 31 March in the year following their last current enrolment. A student completing course studies in the current year is therefore not covered by the Deakin University insurance policies if the student commences placement/work experience after 31 March of the following year.

Getting approval

Approval for placements or work experience need to be obtained from the course coordinator/nominated person within the School or Faculty well in advance of the starting date of the placement.

What cover is provided?

Insurance cover is provided under the following policies: General & Products Liability (including liability to host employers), Professional Indemnity, Professional Indemnity Medical Malpractice, Personal Accident and International Travel.

Policy summary

Students considering placements/work experience need to familiarise themselves with the details of the insurance cover as summarised on the Insurance Summary for Students on Placements / Work Experience page.
