If you are staying abroad within the European Union or in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland, you are insured via the European Health Insurance Card. If necessary, contact your health insurance company to find out whether the insurance cover provided by the European Health Insurance Card is sufficient for you personally when you are abroad. Depending on the country of destination and previous illnesses, additional insurance may be useful.
If you are studying abroad at a country outside of the region covered by the European Health Insurance Card, you will need to take out international health insurance. Search for information about local health insurance providers and their coverage plans as early as possible.
