International applicants must have sufficient health insurance in order to study in Germany. This must cover the following services in Germany:

  • medical and dental treatment
  • supply of pharmaceuticals, wound dressings, therapeutic and aid products
  • hospital treatment
  • medical services for rehabilitation
  • services during pregnancy and birth

In Germany, students can be covered by either public or private health insurance. An example of a public health provider would be BARMER.

Many students choose to use a Fintiba, a private provider that allows you setup both your health insurance and blocked account from your home country. Information on their services are available here:

If you are an EEA national, or from a country that has concluded a Social Security Agreement with Germany, you are exempt from the health insurance requirement upon production of proof of health insurance in their own country.
