Short information:

  • Applicants from within the European Union:
    You do not need a German health insurance policy. Your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is valid for study in Germany. If you do not already have this card, you will need to order the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from your insurance company in your home country well in advance.

  • Applicants from beyond the European Union:
    For you, a German health insurance policy is obligatory. After you arrival in Frankfurt (Oder), you will have to set up such a policy with a German health insurance company.
