Health insurance

The Netherlands has a high standard of medical care. It is, however, very important to be properly insured. Medical costs can be very high, especially if they include a stay in a hospital. Students at institutes of higher education are not automatically insured against medical expenses abroad. You must arrange this yourself.

All international students in the Netherlands must have health insurance. What kind of health insurance applies to you depends on your country of origin, age and the duration of your stay.

We expect all summer school participants to have arranged proper health insurance before arriving in Groningen. You can apply for a short term private health insurance through Aon.

NB Participants or guest lecturers who need a visa are required to show proof of a medical insurance.
