Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)


The Australian Government requires all overseas students to take out medical insurance for the duration of their student visa. This will help you if you become injured or sick while you study in Australia.

As well as being a mandatory requirement of your visa, taking out Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) will give you and your family peace of mind during your time here. The last thing you need when you are ill is worrying about medical bills.

OSHC will help you pay for most medical and hospital care you may need while studying in Australia. The policy covers you for doctors, hospitals, ambulances and prescription drugs.

You can find out about what's included in OSHC's student health insurance here.

Only Australian registered private health insurers can offer OSHC. This is so the Australian Government can monitor and regulate the insurance companies.

Our preferred provider of student medical cover is Allianz Global Assistance OSHC. You are required to pay for your OSHC when you accept your offer to study at CSU Study Centres.

If you’re already studying in Australia when you apply here, you need to send us a photocopy of your OSHC membership card. This provides proof that you have student health cover for at least the first 12 months of your CSU study program.
