Overseas Student Health Cover(OSHC)

All students are required to pay OSHC for the duration of their student visa. OSHC provides for medical and hospital cover for students and their dependants.

Our preferred OSHC provider is BUPA. Your offer letter will provide more detail on costs depending on the expected length of your student visa.

Students undertaking short term study abroad or UOW College studies on other visa types (including tourist and working holiday visas) and student visa holders from Sweden and Norway are currently exempt from the requirement to obtain OSHC.

The SAF is a compulsory charge, introduced following changes to Australian Government legislation, which funds improvements to facilities for students across a broad range of service areas, such as subsidised food outlets, childcare, student advocacy as well as sporting, recreational and cultural activities.

All international students enrolled at UOW will be invoiced twice yearly for the amount determined each year. The SAF 2016 fee is:
