Health Insurance

Students of 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 course of study while they are younger than 30 years (according to 5 Section 1 No. 9 SGB V).

International students can apply for an exemption from the statutory health insurance scheme if they are insured by a private health insurance scheme or if they present proof that health insurance from their home country is valid in the Federal Republic of Germany and that it provides the same coverage as a statutory health insurance scheme.

For students, the monthly contributions for the statutory health and supplementary nursing care insurance currently amount to approximately 90€ per month.
