 Services and Facilities

Health insurance: 

Important Information

The Australian government requires that all international students and their families pay for health insurance in Australia through the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) scheme. The University-preferred provider of OSHC is OSHC Worldcare.

 

You will need evidence that you have OSHC before you can obtain your visa for Australia. Membership of a health insurance scheme in your home country does not exempt you from paying OSHC. Only Swedish students covered by SKANDIA and Norwegian students covered by the National Norwegian Insurance Scheme are exempt from paying the Australian Overseas Student Health Cover as a result of special inter-governmental arrangements. If you insure with OSHC Worldcare through the University, then in so doing, you consent to the University disclosing your relevant personal details (for example, your family name, given name, sex, date of birth, start date and campus code) to OSHC Worldcare so that your OSHC can be registered. You should enquire at the OSHC Worldcare website www.oshcworldcare.com.au about your OSHC membership card after you arrive in Sydney.

When you are issued with an offer for a place on the CEMS exchange program at the University of Sydney you will be required to make an online payment via the International Office for the compulsory OSHC Worldcare. OSHC provides free access to the University health service and public hospitals. Higher level coverage (e.g. access to private hospitals, or coverage for spouse and family) is your responsibility. Waiting periods apply for some health treatments.

 

Worldcare Assist OSHC Fees (from 01 Jan 2011)

Single student: $210 up to 6 months / $420 up to 12 months

Accommodation Information Brochure:
http://www.usyd.edu.au/current_students/accommodation/documents/accom09.pdf
General Information:
Generally, accommodation in Sydney is difficult (but not impossible) to find. Due to the combination of a number of large Universities in and around Sydney (The University of Sydney alone has 40,000+ students on campus each year) and many tourists and migrants, the demand on short and mid term accommodation is very high. Aside from the University accommodation services listed above there are a number of other options available for finding accommodation. These options will be similar to finding accommodation in any country and include the following:
•    http://domain.com.au ‘share’ section. Popular suburbs close to the University campus are Darlington, Camperdown, Newtown, Sydney, Glebe, Leichhardt and Surrey Hills. To view suburbs close by search “The University of Sydney’ on http://maps.google.com.au
•    Other classified accommodation advertisements, listed through many different websites – a popular search is ‘student accommodation Sydney’ on http://google.com.au
•    Travel guides, such as Lonely Planet http://loneyplanet.com or Rough Guide http://roughguides.com often contain very practical and affordable accommodation suggestions for particular areas
•    Contact current CEMS students on exchange/studying at the University of Sydney through the CEMS network or Facebook for ideas and suggestions
•    Consider youth hostel accommodation as an interim measure upon arrival http://yha.com.au It is the responsibility of each student to find suitable accommodation for the duration of their stay in Sydney and the
above information under ‘General Information’ is meant as a guide only.
