Choosing the right OSHC

We can help turn your dreams into a plan

Congratulations! You’ve made a great decision to live and study in Australia. Before you can obtain your visa and begin your journey of discovery, you’ll need to buy Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). We’re here to help, with a range of convenient cover options to buy before you go.

IDP has been helping students to live and study happily in Australia for more than 50 years. We can help you with everything from finding the right course and educational institution, to organising your visa and even helping with other services like OSHC, student banking, accommodation, help line, telecommunication, guardianship and more. 

We partner with the best OSHC providers in Australia to give you the choice you need. The focus is always on making things easier for you, so you can thrive.

You deserve the best health cover 

IDP partner providers are chosen because they are trusted names who offer high quality health cover at a reasonable price. Each one meets the strict conditions that registered Australian health funds must comply with before they can provide high quality cover for overseas students. 

Our partners 

  • Allianz
  • BUPA Australia
  • NIB
  • AHM (coming soon)
  • Medibank Private (coming soon)

OSHC made simple

We’ve made it easy for you to compare and choose OSHC that meet Australian Government visa requirements. 

You can apply online and get your policy confirmation in just a few hours. Or if you need a little extra help, ask an IDP counsellor to help organise your OSHC with you. 

Once it’s done, you’ll know you’re made the best decision for you and your journey. And you can move on to the next job on your list!
