It is a requirement of the visa subclass 500 Student - Schools that the student has Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) while in Australia. Please refer to the Accommodation and Welfare Policy on page 5 of the
Standard Application Form (pdf) (772kb) for more information.
The International Education Division can arrange OSHC to be provided by Medibank. For information on the Medibank OSHC prices and policy details, please refer to the
Medibank Private Health Insurance website.
If you do not want the Department to arrange OSHC, then the student’s parent or legal custodian is responsible for purchasing OSHC for the duration of the student’s stay in Australia. Evidence of OSHC must be provided to the International Education Division prior to the Letter of Confirmation being issued.
