Before your new CoE can be issued, an extension to your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) must be processed.

Under the conditions of your scholarship, the University will provide OSHC only for the duration of the scholarship, which is 3.5 years for a PhD. It is your responsibility to meet the cost of OSHC required after that provided by your scholarship. If you wish to stay for the maximum allowable visa period (8 months after the date you are expected to complete your program) this is a difference of 14 months.

If you have previously paid a deposit towards OSHC, this will be deducted from the amount you select.

Once your upgrade is approved and processed, UON 研究生研究 will contact you to confirm the details 和 cost of your OSHC extension, which will be charged to your student account.
