Student Visa (Subclass 500)
The holder of a Student Visa (Subclass 500) can undertake a CRICOS-registered full-time course in a recognized educational institution in Australia. The subclass 500 student visa can be applied online from inside or outside Australia. It allows the student to stay in Australia for the entirety of their course or for up to 5 years. The holder of a student visa is allowed to bring along eligible family members to Australia.
In order to be eligible for this visa, the candidate must be enrolled in a course of study in Australia and have a valid OSHC (Overseas Student Health Cover) policy. However, there are other additional eligibility criteria for this visa.
Once in Australia on a study visa, the student can work up to 40 hours every 2-week period once their course commences.
Student Visa Health Insurance is Mandatory
As per the guidelines of the Department of Home Affairs in Australia, the students (and family member(s), if accompanying) must possess and maintain adequate health insurance for the entirety of their stay in Australia. A valid OSHC ensures the international students meet the costs of medical and hospital care during their stay in Australia. The OSHC also covers for pharmaceuticals and ambulance services.
At OSHC Policy, you get a comprehensive list of insurance policies to suit all your needs.
