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 accepting their offer and making the required payment by 21 December 2012 will be able to obtain cover at the 2012 OSHC rates; the 2013 OSHC fees will apply for all acceptances received after that.
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.
Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF)
The SSAF 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 liable for the SSAF from 2013, and will be invoiced twice yearly for the amount determined each year. The SSAF 2013 fee is:
