Overseas Student Health Cover

​Most international students must maintain Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)​ for the duration of their Australian student visa. International students must advise Education Queensland International (EQI) of their arrangements for OSHC in order to receive their Confirmation of Enrolment.

EQI can arrange OSHC on behalf of international students with Allianz Global Assist​ance, the EQI preferred provider of OSHC.  

For details about what services are covered under OSHC and what is not as well as how to make a claim please see the OSHC Fact Sheet (PDF, 415KB).​

Information about OSHC is also available in a number of languages.

OSHC packages are also available from the following reputable providers:


Additional Insurance Cover

EQI recommends that all international students take out additional travel insurance for the duration of their stay in Australia to ensure comprehensive protection for their valuable personal items and medical services not covered by OSHC.
