RGIT provides good assistance and support services for international students on a range of matters including general welfare, visas and coping with change in lifestyle.
Through our website and social media, we keep you posted on all the exciting, student-relevant activities happening in and around Hobart. Read Evolve, your student magazine, which can also be found in the library and recreation areas on campus.
Maintaining private health insurance is a visa requirement for international students. RGIT can organise overseas student health cover (OSHC) for international students, the health fund we use is Allianz. We can also transfer your existing health cover to Allianz if you prefer.
