Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) assists international students to meet the costs of medical and hospital care they may need while in Australia. Students must have OSHC arranged before applying for a student visa.

UTS Insearch can assist in arranging OSHC. Alternatively students are welcome to arrange their own health cover. If UTS Insearch is requested to arrange OSHC on behalf of a student, the fees payable for OSHC will be noted in the student's offer letter. 

To calculate the visa length premium for Medibank Private cover, log into the Medibank Private website. You can also use the Medibank Private OSHC calculator to work out the fee payable if your student needs to extend the OSHC for any reason.

Students must show proof that they have OSHC arranged before applying for a student visa.
