Australia as the destination for higher education !

While overseas study for Indian students is expensive, Australia is one of the more affordable destinations. Australia offers a high standard quality education, excellent living conditions while hosting a tolerant multicultural society which includes a large Indian expatriate community.

Higher education in Australia provides value for money given that the courses are shorter and more intensive, they quickly incorporate latest innovations in science & technology, modern trends in marketing & management in their diploma/degree programs. All of this makes Australian education very current, practical and responsive to the needs of the working world.

You can also complete an online TATA AIG Travelguard proposal form. You can renew/extend the plan using TATA AIG student insurance extension on expiry.

The need for student health Insurance while studying in Australia

Indian students can buy OSHC through the University or they can arrange their own OSHC independently through an approved provider. If you want to arrange for your own OSHC, then you should visit the Department of Health and Aging website to get a list of approved providers.
