What is Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)?
Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is health insurance specifically for international students on student visas. OSHC is compulsory for international student visa holders and their dependents and is required for the entire length of your student visa.
You must arrange your own OSHC before applying for a student visa. You should do this immediately after you accept your offer and receive your electronic confirmation of enrolment (eCoE) from the University of Canberra.
The University of Canberra’s preferred healthcare provider is Allianz Care Australia. To arrange your OSHC with Allianz Care Australia click here.
