OHSC is compulsory for students from most countries, and must be organised before your studies begin. The OSHC fees above are based on 2015 rates. 

Note: Students from Belgium, Norway and Sweden are not required to purchase OSHC, as Australia maintains reciprocal healthcare agreements with these countries.
