This health insurance policy provides a safety net for international students,similar to that provided to Australian residents through the Medicare system.It is provided by a private insurance company and arranged by Monash.It covers basic medical, hospital and pharmaceutical costs while students are in Australia and enrolled at Monash.

3. ESTIMATED LIVING EXPENSES

Information about living costs in Melbourne for international students can be found at monash.edu/study/international/prepare/cost-of-living.html
This information is primarily for international students doing full three year courses at Monash so there may be some variations for short term exchange students. You can also get an idea of living costs in Melbourne at: www.liveinvictoria.vic.gov.au

4. VISA

Exchange students must enter Australia with a sub-class 575 student visa and not any other. This is called a ‘non-award’ student visa and is for students studying full time in courses that do not lead to an Australian degree. Before applying for a visa, students will need a letter of offer from Monash University and a Certificate of Enrolment (CoE).
This is issued to students after Monash Abroad has received the student’s acceptance form and, where relevant, payment for OSHC and any other fees.
