Other Costs

Some of your study costs are not covered by tuition fees, for example:

  • Visa fees 

    Australian visa costs and conditions

    A student visa will cost you $540. It allows you to reside in Australia, and to enter and leave Australia, for the duration of your course.

    There is no option for part-time study (you must complete your course within the duration of your student visa).

    For the purpose of issuing visas, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) has organised countries based on assessment levels. We recommend you consult the DIBP website to find out the assessment level of your home country and follow the prescribed procedure for that assessment level.

    You must stay at Flinders University for the first 6 months of your study, unless DIBP or Flinders University gives you permission to transfer to another institution.

    For more detailed information about your visa, refer to the Student section of the DIBP website and for information about visas for your spouse or family visit DIBP's website.

  • Health cover

    Overseas Student Health Cover

    Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is compulsory for all international students and their families, with the exception of Norwegians covered under the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme or Swedes entitled to grants and loans from the Swedish National Board of Student Aid (and thus eligible for Study Insurance).

    OSHC covers all fees in private and public hospitals, emergency ambulance services, and up to 85% of most medical services outside hospitals (excluding dentistry and physiotherapy).

    As a new student you must pay your visa length OSHC fee directly to Flinders University together with your first semester tuition fees.

    For more information about OSHC, please visit our health cover section of this website and for information about Health Insurance Options for students please visit BUPA students.
