Student Visa and Health Insurance
A student visa enables your daughter to study in Australia and to apply for permission to work.
Assistance is given to those who wish to apply for permission to work part-time. A student’s assessment level is determined by nationality and course of study.
Visit the Department of Immigration website for more general information.
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIABP) requires all holders of Student Visas to have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) during the time they are studying in Australia.
Your daughter must obtain health insurance cover with a private health insurance company because she is not covered by Australia’s national healthcare program. OSHC provides your daughter with Australia-wide access to some of the best health services in the world.
