This information is applicable for Industry Affiliate Program placements only.
A student who undertakes an approved unpaid placement in Australia or Overseas as a requirement of their course or degree program is covered by the University's Personal Accident, Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurances whilst involved in approved placement (IAP project) activities. Any activity which is not part of the placement (for example sightseeing or shopping) is not covered by University insurance.
If a student receives any form of payment, gratuity or reward for the placement they will not be covered by University insurance.
If students drive a vehicle owned by an organisation, insurance is the responsibility of the organisation and not the University. However, an organisation vehicle may not be covered for those who are not employees of the organisation.
For Industry Affiliates Program placements, copies of the Universities Insurance Certificates can be obtained by emailing the Griffith Sciences work Integrated Learning Office firstname.lastname@example.org
