​​​​​​​​​Most international students must have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)  while studying in Australia. It is mandatory if you hold a student visa.

OSHC is an insurance cover that can help towards the cost of things like doctors’ visits, hospital stays, medicines and emergency support if needed while staying in Australia.​

You have the option to arrange your own OSHC through an approved provider, or EQI can arrange it for you.

Arranging your own OSHC​​

You can choose to arrange your own OSHC through an approved provider. OSHC packages are available from the following approved​ providers:

EQI arranged OSHC

If you can choose for EQI to arrange OSHC for you, it will be arranged through Allianz Care Australia.

Information about the basic medical and hospital services you will receive are covered in the OSHC Allianz Care Australia package.

Please note that we will receive a commission from Allianz Care Australia for arranging your OSHC.

Your information will be shared with Allianz Care Australia and your data will be stored by Allianz Care Australia in France and Germany.

Confirmation of E​nrolment​

In order to receive your Confirmation of Enrolment, you must provide the details of your OSHC.

Additional insurance cover

We also recommend you take out additional travel insurance for the duration of your stay as an international student in Australia.

This will ensure you have comprehensive protection for your valuable personal items and medical services that might not be covered by OSHC.​​​
