Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is a compulsory health insurance product required by the Australian Government for international students studying in Australia. It is health cover that gives international students a level of insurance coverage that contributes to assisting with costs related to:

  • Out of hospital medical treatment

The Australian Government through the Department of Immigration and Border Protection requires all holders of a Student Visa to maintain OSHC during their stay in Australia.
