Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

The Australian government requires that all international students have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). OSHC offers you access to a world-class health care system. This is great for the quality of treatment for anyone injured or sick in Australia; however, it can become quite costly. Having OSHC can assist in mitigating these costs. BUPA is a popular insurance company with international students.
