Step 2: Accept your offer

To accept your offer, you will need to complete the Student Acceptance and Payment Agreement, a contract between you and the University.

If your offer is conditional, then you'll need to meet the conditions in your offer letter by submitting the required documentation along with your acceptance documentation. Please follow the instructions in your conditional offer letter to meet these conditions and ensure you accept your conditional offer by the due date.

Complete your agreement

The International Student Acceptance and Payment Agreement is a contract between you and the University. You will need to complete and return the agreement to receive your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).

To accept your offer, you must:

1. Complete the acceptance agreement

Complete the Acceptance and Payment Agreement form which you received with your offer.

2. Choose your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

Maintaining private health insurance while in Australia is a visa condition for International student visa holders. Bupa is the University of Melbourne’s preferred Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) insurance provider, offering a policy that is designed for international students. You will benefit from having a Bupa representative on campus to answer your health cover questions. The policy is approved by the Department of Home Affairs and can be the most convenient option for students. Review the policy details (PDF 64.8 KB) to check whether this policy is right for you.

To arrange this cover, simply indicate on your Student Acceptance and Payment Agreement form that you'd like the University to arrange a visa-length OSHC policy for you. You'll also need to pay the OSHC premium along with your tuition fees.

Further details can be found on our Overseas Student Health Cover page, or on your offer letter.

3. If you’re a Study Abroad student, pay your tuition fees

You’ll pay a set fee for each semester you’re at the University regardless of how many subjects you’re enrolled in.

  • Some Study Abroad students need to pay tuition fees. Your offer letter will indicate the amount you need to pay in order to accept your offer. Your initial fee payment is the full amount for one semester’s study abroad and is due when you accept your offer. Check the tuition fees for more information.
  • If you are a Study Abroad student whose tuition fees and/or OSHC payment are billed to your home institution or consortia group, proceed to Step 4.
  • If you are unsure whether or not you need to pay tuition fees, please contact your Study Abroad or Exchange Coordinator at your home university.

4. Sign and return your completed agreement

Send your completed agreement to by the due date stated in your offer letter, along with the following documents:

  1. Evidence of tuition fee payment.
