Medical insurance

Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia (MOHE) requires all international students to have a valid Medical Insurance policy throughout their period of study in Malaysia (a valid insurance cover must be procured for the duration of the student pass issued by the Immigration Department of Malaysia). Proof of medical insurance coverage is required to complete the Student Pass endorsement.

Effective 1st January 2021, AXA is the appointed medical insurance provider for all Monash Malaysia students.

You must purchase medical insurance through Monash University Malaysia. This is mandatory for every international student studying with us. You may purchase your own insurance to supplement or obtain additional insurance coverage for yourself, over and above the mandatory medical insurance.

You will be insured from the date you enter Malaysia by informing us of your arrival date. All international students must be covered by a locally purchased medical insurance scheme.

It is your responsibility to renew your Student Pass on a timely basis to ensure that you have uninterrupted insurance coverage throughout the entire duration of your studies in Malaysia.
