The Australian government requires international students and their families to pay for their own health insurance in Australia through the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) scheme. International Students studying on an Australian Student Visa must have appropriate health insurance for the duration of their studies on a Student Visa through an approved provider of the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) scheme. This is a requirement of the Australian Government, unless otherwise exempted by the Government.

Streamlined visa processing
The Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection has recently introduced streamlined visa processing arrangements for all university courses. Under this arrangement, applicants usually have to supply less evidence resulting in a faster visa application process.
The University of Sydney is registered as a participant for streamlined visa processing. Study Abroad and Exchange students are deemed eligible. For further information about student visa assessment and streamlined visa processing, refer to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website or contact your nearest Australian Immigration Office.
