Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

All students applying for a student visa must obtain OSHC for the entire proposed duration of their visa.

Make sure you’re covered

You must have current OSHC at all times during your studies

Overseas Student Health Cover OSHC helps minimise medical expenses incurred whilst in Australia. Curtin College’s preferred provider is Allianz Global Assistance. Allianz customers have access to online help, telephone support, legal advice and assistance towards payment of covered medical bills. Not everything is covered by Allianz, so you should check your level of cover carefully before committing to medical treatment or advice.

Curtin College is pleased to arrange Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) on your behalf. The cost of OSHC is shown in your Letter of Offer.

If you elect to purchase your own cover, you must provide evidence of your cover to Curtin College before your visa can be processed.

OSHC may not cover any illness or disability that you had prior to arriving in Australia. Make sure you bring any optical or medical prescriptions with you.
