The Australian Government requires all international students on student visas to have Overseas Student Health Cover ( OSHC ). You must take out Overseas Student Health Cover. Costs vary between insurers, but expect to pay around $ 300 / year.


Overseas Students Health Cover - Australia's largest private health insurer is Medibank OSHC 


Some of the others are OSHC worldcare, BUPA Australia, AHM.


The cost of living for a university student sharing a rented house with two others is somewhere between $AUD15,000 and $AUD20,000 per year.

Sharing unit is off course much cheaper. Student services will also provide you with up-to-date information about your legal rights and responsibilities as a renter. 

Bear in mind that, as an international student, you'll be permitted to work no more than 20 hours per week. Often can earn you $AUD25 or more an hour. However you may have to settle for work in service industries, where pay rates can be as low as $ 11 per hour. If you are over 18 years of age and have a foreign driver's licence, you may drive in Australia on that licence for as long as you remain a student here. Australians drive on the left-hand side of the road. Make sure you know what Australian traffic signs mean - they may differ markedly from those in your own country. Public transport - if you're not a permanent resident of Australia, you have to pay full fare.
