Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)
The Australian Government requires all holders of student visas to have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of their time in Australia. Once an offer has been made by Sydney Film School, applicants must organise 12 moths of OSHC in order for visa documents to be processed.
Sydney Film School recommends AHM as our preferred provider of OSHC, and details of their cover can be found on their website. Sydney Film School has an account with AHM and can make payment on behalf of applicants.
Health insurance, (OSHC), is compulsory for international students studying in Australia. OSHC covers you for certain medical costs if you need to visit a doctor or go to hospital whilst you are studying in Australia.
You should check the policy carefully, including the details of what is covered. Optional extra cover is available at an additional fee.
Serious medical problems should be taken care of before you come to Australia, as standard OSHC generally does not cover pre-existing medical conditions.
