The basic health insurance is mandatory if you are in paid employment and if you are a PhD Scholarship student, participating in the PhD Scholarship Programme.

Additional insurance

The basic Health Care insurance policy does not include liability insurance, household contents insurance or luggage insurance. It is possible to apply for additional insurance at AON. We strongly recommend that you do so.
