Do I need to have Health Cover/Insurance?

It is a Student Visa condition that you have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of your stay in Australia. OSHC will contribute towards medical and hospital expenses that you may incur.
Greenwich can arrange your OSHC with Medibank International for you at the time of application. Please note this on your enrolment form.
