You may have seen the first edition of the HDR Student Handbook around campus. This gives useful information about HDR candidature and support services available across ANU. As with any new publication there are teething issues, so please note changes to page 21 of the handbook (dealing with research student travel). This incorrectly states HDR students are not covered by ANU’s travel insurance when travelling for research purposes. HDR students who have received approval to travel (through the online Eform process) are covered by ANU corporate travel insurance. The text should read:
IMPORTANT: You should always have your travel approved through the online eForms portal to be covered by ANU corporate travel insurance. When you arrange travel you should note that HDR Students have limited University cover for accidents and medical emergencies when engaged in PhD research related activity. For more information, contact ANU Insurance Office on +61 2 6125 8734 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
