If you are entering Australia on a student visa, health cover is mandatory. This can be arranged for you by the staff at UWA CELT. You will receive your medical membership card approximately 2 weeks after your arrival.

If you are entering Australia on a visitor or working holiday visa, you will not be covered by Australia’s Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). Therefore, we strongly recommend you arrange insurance cover for your stay in Australia.
