Australia has a special system of health cover for International students which is Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). You will need to buy OSHC before you come to Australia to cover you from when 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.
You might find that your institution has an agreement with a specific OSHC provider. You can choose to take out OSHC with this provider, or with the Australian OSHC provider of your choice. Stampford Australia can assist you in obtaining the right OHSC membership through our partner provider, contact us for more further details.
We have the following partner providers of OSHC in Australia. Visit these websites to find detailed information on what they cover and to decide which provider is right for you.
- Allianz Global Assistance (Worldcare)
Your OSHC will help you pay for any medical or hospital care you may need while you're studying in Australia and it will contribute towards the cost of most prescription medicines, and an ambulance in an emergency.
For more information on OSHC insurance cover, refer to the Department of Health Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

My name is Elizabeth, I'm from Italy, I'm 24 years old and I've been to Sydney from last 2 months, so far. I'm studying General English in Kingsway Institute at the City campus. The service at Stamford (Australia) was awesome. What I loved most about the procedure was how tailored it was to my specific profile. Discussions with my consultant made me more aware of my strengths and helped me articulate them fully on my applications.
