Health Insurance for students: All international students must have Health Insurance while in Australia. Health Insurance can be provided by obtaining Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) which provides medical and hospital insurance. As an international student you can ask the education provider to organise OSHC, or you can select an approved OSHC provider yourself and pay the insurance. If you are studying with more than one educational provider and both are arranging OSHC, you will have to ensure that there is no gap between policies. This means that as one policy expires the next commences immediately.
