Health Insurance Documentation

      • By law, students are required to have health insurance in Germany
      • All participants are therefore required to take out a health insurance policy that covers them from their first day in Germany, unless you are already an EU citizen, in which case you simply need to provide your EHIC card.
      • For more information on insurance requirements, please see our page on Healt Insurance.
      • Students are responsible for organizing their health insurance


        A German health insurance company will check if your home or international health insurance is sufficient for German standards, and then issue an exemption certificate to confirm that this is the case. The service is essential for your enrollment at the University, is free of charge, and can be provided to you in English. Please fill in the downloadable form below and submit it with the rest of your application.

        For this purpose, the following documents are required:

        5.4 Copy of your passport. We will send this to the insurance company.

        5.5 Copy of your international health insurance policy IN ENGLISH. Please note we need a copy of the policy document itself in order for it be properly compared to the requirements for Germany (specifically, we need the page with list of items that are covered by the policy). Please make sure that the insurance has unlimited coverage. An insurance card is not sufficient. 

        Please make sure that the insurance has unlimited coverage. An insurance card is not sufficient.
