Health Insurance

According to 5 Section 1 No. 9 SGB V, students at German universities can obtain health insurance from a statutory health insurance scheme or an alternative health insurance scheme until the end of the 14th semester of their degree programme, and until they reach the age of 30. International students can apply for exemption from the statutory health insurance scheme if they have private health insurance or if they present proof that health insurance from their home country is valid in the Federal Republic of Germany. They must also prove that it provides the same coverage as a statutory health insurance scheme. The monthly contributions for students to the statutory health and nursing care insurance currently amount to approximately €80 per month.
