Overseas Student Health Cover - Duration & Costs

It is a condition of an Australian student visa that the student holds valid overseas student health cover (OSHC) for the entire duration of their study in Australia. OSHC is a private health care arrangement which helps cover the costs of medical treatments should you get sick or have an accident.

Visa duration

A temporary student visa typically allows you to stay in Australia for the duration of your program. Dependent family members who come with you to Australia are usually able to stay the same length of time as you, but they cannot stay once you have left the country.

Your OSHC policy must cover the full period of your visa. Your student visa can be granted up to the maximum duration outlined in the table below.
