Australia has a special system of health cover for international students called Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). You will need to buy OSHC before you come to Australia to cover you from the moment you arrive.
The Department of Immigration and Citizenship requires you to maintain OSHC for the duration of your time on a student visa in Australia.
IMPORTANT: Your visa will only be granted if you have full health cover for your entire course duration, and students who take up to 12 weeks of cover after their course finishing date will, in most cases, receive a longer student visa (with additional weeks cover for this additional stay in Australia after the course end date).
Envirotech uses the services of Medibank Private to cover our students and arranges the cover for you.
Medibank Private charges approximately $440 per year for a single cover and $880 for a family cover.

It is your responsibility to remember to renew your cover if you apply for a further stay in Australia. The staff at Envirotech will assist you in arranging for the cover.
