For 500,000+ international students[1], studying in Australia can be a life enhancing experience, but it also has unknown risks. Alarmingly, over 22% of international students experienced sexual harassment in an Australian university setting in 2016, according to the recent report by the Human Rights Commission2. As a provider of Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) to international students attending Australian universities for over 15 years, Allianz Global Assistance (AGA) experiences 13,000 calls to its Student Assistance Line (SAL) and has seen firsthand the issues that can impact international students.


Today, Allianz Global Assistance announces a new, one-of-a-kind offering with Sonder Australia to provide international students studying in Australia access to in-person critical incident and support services at the touch of a button, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
