Overseas Student Health Cover

All international students who are moving to Australia for studies must have an Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). The health cover must be valid and active throughout their stay in Australia. If your family members are accompanying you, they should have a health cover too.

OSHC is one of the prerequisites to apply for the student visa. It is one of the documents you enclose while applying for the student visa. Apart from the fact it is mandatory, OSHC is very beneficial as it covers a wide range of medical expenses.

Healthcare system is very robust in Australia and it is costly also. Therefore purchasing OSHC is a smart financial decision. There are multiple players who provide this health insurance and it normally costs between AU $450 – AU $600 based on the plan you opt for.

Student Testimonials

It has come to my knowledge that Australia are popular for becoming rank 3rd for accommodating international students. In top 100 colleges of the world, several of them can be found in Australia that provides a high quality of education. In addition, it is known for having a multi- cultural society that will benefit in my personal and social development.

With the Master of Nursing Practice program, I will be able to fulfill my career goal. The program involves intensified clinical practice, which I believe is the best way to enhance one’s knowledge of the discipline. Activities which involve discussion of the global perspectives of nursing will equip me with knowledge to be a globally competitive nurse.

I will take Advanced Diploma of Information Technology at Southern Cross Education Institute as a continuation of the course I have studied here in the Philippines that gained me a vocational education. I wanted to study this course because I know that what I will learn from their curriculum can be used to my advantage once I apply for a job in my home county or in Japan.  

I believe that the AHIC is the best place for me to get my education because their school’s vision is directly aimed at overseas students of different nationalities, like myself. They are best-suited to provide me with well-rounded training that also considers cultural diversity. Through them, I am confident that I would be able to reach my full potential and achieve my goals in advancing my career.

Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT), which offers a course in Early Childhood Education and Care.  The institute has high quality education, which provides the most up -to-date techniques and effective teaching strategies, and I believe that is what I need to help me shape my career

AECC Global provided great assistance on my student visa application in Melbourne, Australia. They made sure that I was on the right track as I extended my visa and kept me updated on the application process. Additionally, the team has been very approachable and always there to answer all my queries.
