Overseas Health Cover (OSHC)
All International Students studying at the University of Canberra are required to have visa-length Overseas Health Cover (OSHC). The University's preferred OSHC provider is Allianz Global Assistance.
If you require help with the Allianz Assistance App or Ordering your Membership card this handy PDF will answer all your questions.
For new students, you will need to buy OSHC before you come to Australia, to cover you from when you arrive. You will also need to maintain OSHC throughout your stay in Australia. We encorage all new students to download their OSHC Assitant App as soon as possible to have all their information on hand.
If you would like to extend your OSHC cover, or have other questions about OSHC, you can consult an OSHC representative in Student Central at the following times:
|Tuesday||10am - 12pm and 1pm - 4pm|
|Wednesday||10am - 12pm and 1pm - 4pm|
|Thursday||10am - 12pm and 1pm - 4pm|
After arriving in Australia, you can order your card online by using their OSHC Assistant App or head to their Website
For information on what you are covered for with your OSHC please refer to the website of your OSHC provider.
If your family is accompanying you to Australia it is important (and a compulsory visa requirement) that you upgrade your OSHC cover from single to family cover for the duration of your course. To upgrade your membership to family cover, you may visit the Allianz website or visit the Allianz representative at the Student Centre.
