Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

For International students, it is a requirement of your student visa that you have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the entire duration of your stay in Australia. OSHC gives you access to out of hospital and in hospital medical services to help you maintain your health. Students are welcome to arrange their own health cover directly with the authorised providers, or through their agents or through us. On the enrolment form, please specify that you require Health Insurance for this option.

Australian Professional Skills Institute uses Medibank OSHC Essentials. If you need further information and the premium of OSHC, please visit Medibank.
