Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)
Why you need OSHC
Health insurance, called Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), is compulsory for international students studying in Australia. It covers you for certain medical costs if you need to visit a doctor or go to hospital.
You should check the OSHC policy carefully, including the details of what is covered. Extra cover is available for an additional fee.
