Guangzhou University requires all international students to have sufficient medical insurance throughout the duration of study. At minimum, the insurance must cover accidents and hospitalization. Students can either buy the insurance before coming to China, or else buy it here. Upon registration, foreign students should submit documentation of proof of coverage from their insurance companies (or other relevant bodies) to the university. This documentation must prove that they are covered for accidents and hospitalization within the duration of study. The said documentation should be in Chinese or English.
