HEALTH INSURANCE

Health insurance is mandatory in Germany and you will not be able to enrol at the University without health insurance.

EUROPEAN STUDENTS:

As a European citizen, you should have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which is also recognised in Germany. Once you have arrived in Germany, you can get your coverage approved by a statutory/public health insurance provider here who will issue an insurance certificate.

Please ask your health insurance provider at home which documents you will have to take with you. If you are moving to Germany for a longer time, the S1 form is required

NON-EUROPEAN STUDENTS:

You can either apply for health insurance with one of the German public health insurance providers or with a private one.

  •  PUBLIC HEALTH INSURANCE:
Only available for students below the age of 30 years and if you have not had a private insurance during your time of studies in Germany before, you can sign up with them online to ensure coverage from your first day in Germany. At the start of each semester, we invite one of the biggest public health insurance providers in Germany to our campus so that students may have the chance to speak to them and sign up if they wish. Some of the largest providers in Germany:
  • PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE:

Depending on your age and length of stay in Germany, you might choose to opt for private health insurance. In this case, you are also required to get a waiver from the public insurance to confirm that you do not require statutory coverage. Some of the most popular private insurance providers are:

Note:

Once you sign up with a private health insurance provider and get the statutory waiver, you will not be able to change back to a public insurance provider for the duration of your studies.
