  • Your insurance can be made available upon arrival (Incoming Insurance)
    The governmental health insurance is only valid from your enrolment date or start of your studies.

Such a ‘young travel incoming insurance’ can be purchased and will be managed and processed by our partner HanseMerkur.

  • Additional fees for Incoming-Insurance might be required
