Health Insurance

Health insurance coverage is mandatory for students under the age of 30 in Germany. You can either take out German statutory health insurance (appr. 100 € per month) or prove that you are sufficiently covered by a foreign or private health insurance policy. Your insurance status must be confirmed and officially reported to the university by a German statutory health insurance company, before you can complete your enrolment.

PLEASE NOTE: If you take out German statutory health insurance, the insurance will not start until October 1 or April 1 (beginning of semester). If you arrive prior to this date, we recommend you take out private travel health insurance in the meantime.
