Medical insurance

Curtin Singapore confirms and undertakes to the Student that it has in place a medical insurance scheme for all its students as required by Committee for Private Education (CPE) under the EduTrust certification scheme.

This medical insurance scheme shall minimally provide for an annual coverage limit as stated in the Benefits Schedule (if student is involved in school-related activities) throughout the course duration, and the Student is encouraged to seek advice on whether more comprehensive insurance cover is required or desired.

Unlike local students (Singaporean citizens, permanent residents and not a student’s pass holder), international students may not opt out of this scheme.

If you’re a local student with existing medical insurance coverage in Singapore, you may choose to opt out of the compulsory medical insurance scheme. You will be required to sign a Letter of Undertaking confirming your request to opt out. Otherwise, we will purchase medical insurance on your behalf at a fee of S$43.87 per year (inclusive of GST) which you will pay for.
