Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)
Australian Government law requires international students and their dependents undertaking formal studies in Australia to purchase and maintain OSHC before a visa is granted. Membership of a health insurance scheme in your home country does not exempt you from having to take out OSHC. KOI’s recommended provider is AHM and we can arrange the cover on your behalf when you pay your premium at the time you pay your tuition fees.
