It is a condition of your student visa to have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) insurance for the entire duration of study in Australia. OSHC covers all public hospitals in Australia.
International students undertaking formal studies in Australia, and their dependents (for example, spouses and children under 18 years old), must obtain OSHC.
It includes cover for visits to the doctor, some hospital treatment, ambulance cover and limited pharmaceuticals (medicines). OSHC insurers can provide a range of different OSHC products. These may range from a basic product which covers only the compulsory minimum services to comprehensive products which cover, in addition to the compulsory minimum services, extra services as specified under the particular policy.
The College’s preferred provider is BUPA, a quote for single’s cover will be included in your offer of admission and we can arrange OSHC on your behalf if you choose this option.
Or you can arrange your own OSHC, please see below for a list of some other providers:
