It is a condition of an Australian student visa that the student holds valid overseas student health cover (OSHC) for the entire duration of their study in Australia. OSHC is a private health care arrangement which helps cover the costs of medical treatments if an international student gets sick or has an accident.

Please access the "OSHC" page for further details, and the "OSHC - Duration & Costs" page on the length requirements for OSHC.
