Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is an Australian Government visa requirement for all Student Visa holders. It is normally compulsory for all international students, for the duration of their Student Visa. 

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

For more information on visa requirements refer to the Department of Home Affairs.
