Coverage details for Curtin’s various Insurance Policies, is included below, and is generally afforded to Curtin University, including its Staff, Students and Volunteers.
Note the below specific Covered Student Definition with respect to Fieldwork activities:
Covered Student Definition
A Curtin Student is covered by Curtin’s Insurance Policies if the activities undertaken by that Student are authorised by Curtin.
These activities include Curtin-approved Curricular, Co-curricular Fieldwork and/or Work Integrated Learning activities, whether Students are enrolled in a course or unit, or on approved Leave of Absence (LOA).
Where a Student is recorded as Absent Without Official Leave (AWOL), and wishes to undertake Fieldwork activities, they should transfer status to LOA, and seek Curtin authorisation to undertake the Fieldwork in order to be covered by insurance.
Students are not covered for insurance if the above is not undertaken.
