Compulsory student health cover for undergraduate international students

Is student health cover compulsory for undergraduate international students?

Student health cover is compulsory as it is an Australian Government visa regulation that all Student Visa holders pay and be registered for Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of their student visa.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your health insurance is current at all times. Expired health cover is a violation of your Student Visa and exposes you to potentially high medical costs.
