As part of the visa laws, all students must have health insurance for the duration of their visa. Students issued with 12 month visas have access to our group medical health insurance scheme. UOWD has partnered with NLGI (National Life General Insurance) to provide a comprehensive and competitively priced medical insurance plan.
This scheme is compulsory for visa sponsored students and optional for non-sponsored students. It provides round the clock cover for expenses incurred by students in a wide network of hospitals and clinics in the UAE, whether as an outpatient, inpatient or emergency admission.
Please note that UOWD visa-sponsored students will receive medical insurance cover after the visa is issued, the student has attended their medicals and the visa is stamped in the passport. In the interim, students will have to arrange their own health insurance.
For non-sponsored UOWD students, you will need to make an application through the Registrar's Office.
