Insurance for exchange students


As an incoming exchange student at the University of Gothenburg,
you are automatically covered by the Swedish State’s Insurance
for Foreign Students in Sweden, Student IN. The insurance covers
students 24 hours a day and is valid from two weeks before studies
start until two weeks after they end. It is your own responsibility
to decide whether you need extra insurance as a complement to the
Student IN insurance.

The insurance covers emergency health care and should you need a planned check-up you must have extra insurance. If you wish to stay longer in Sweden than your studies demand, you must arrange for your own insurance. The terms of the insurance are available at the Swedish state's insurance company "Kammarkollegiet".

More detailed information on insurance STUDENT IN for exchange students can be found here. 

European students must bring their national proof of health insurance. The insurance above cannot be used for health care purposes for European students.
