All UQ Summer Research scholars should note that they will only be covered by the University’s public liability insurance to the extent that an accident occurs at the University for which the University is at fault.

Scholars who are required to travel to Brisbane to participate in the program are advised to take out an appropriate travel insurance policy to be covered against any travel risks. International and New Zealand citizens in visiting Australia, are encouraged to have a travel insurance policy before they arrive. Medical and hospital insurance associated with travel insurance can be arranged before leaving home, or obtained from Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) after arrival in Brisbane. Proof of cover may be required. For more information:
