Help me choose my dates

Start date

Select the date you will arrive in Australia. If you are unsure choose a date up to 28 days before your course start date.


If you are switching from another OSHC provider choose the day after your OSHC expires.

In order to keep your visa valid you must be covered for OSHC continuously.

End date

Your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) must cover the full period of your visa. Your student visa can be granted up to the maximum duration outlined in the table below.

Duration of Course Add to your course end date
10 months or less 1 month
Over 10 months
ending January - October
2 months
Over 10 months
ending November - December
Select 15th March of the next year

For example: if your course is from 1 January 2014 to 1 September 2014 (this is under 10 months) then add one month to the course end date.

In this example your OSHC dates would be 1 January 2014 to 1 October 2014.
