As an International Student, it is a condition of your student visa that you have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of your student visa in Australia.

OSHC coverage, including out of hospital and in hospital medical services, are detailed in the policy document.

However it is important to understand that for non-emergency hospital care, including maternity (pregnancy) services, access to some medical services in some public hospital may be limited.

This means that public hospital services for non-emergency care, including maternity (pregnancy) services, may not be available to you when you need them. In these instances, you may be required to access medical services through a private hospital. Private hospital health care will typically incur some out of pocket costs that are not covered by your Overseas Student Health Cover policy and will be your responsibility.

Please note that for maternity (pregnancy) services, these out of pocket costs could range from $4,000 to $10,000, depending on the level of maternity service/care provided.

Therefore, if you are considering falling pregnant whilst studying in Australia, it is recommended that you discuss this further with your GP and OSHC health provider to look at the services available and the anticipated costs involved.

If you’re enrolled in a program or course working with animals or in agricultural environments, you need to provide The University of Queensland (UQ) with evidence of vaccination or immunity against Q fever.

UQ Gatton Medical Centre and UQ St Lucia Medical Centre both run a Q fever screening and vaccination program for commencing international students at the start of Semester 1.


The program consists of two visits, one week apart.

  • First visit – a detailed history, skin test and blood test are performed
  • Second visit, one week later – tests are read and Q fever vaccine is given if tests show no immunity to Q fever

You must attend both sessions in the program you choose to attend.
