Health insurance for exchange students

The Netherlands has a high standard of medical care. It is mandatory for international students residing in the Netherlands to have a health insurance. International students are not automatically insured, so they must arrange their own health insurance.

What kind of health insurance applies to you, depends on your country of origin, age, the duration of your stay and whether you have a job in the Netherlands alongside your studies.
