Health insurance

A health insurance is important. We help you with it!

  • Having a valid health insurance during all times while you are in Hungary is required by the National Directorate-General for Aliens Policing (the “Immigration Office”). Without an insurance you cannot apply for or renew your residence permit.
  • Accidents can always happen, just like illnesses. It’s better to be safe than sorry and be prepared for such situations.

We can offer an insurance for our students who study here with a scholarship (Stipendium Hungaricum, SCYP, Diaspora, At Risk) or for our fee paying international students – ERASMUS students are unfortunately not included.

Your scholarship includes a health insurance option without any extra charge. Our contracted partner is the CIG Pannónia insurance company. We recommend you to take this opportunity so you don’t need to worry about your well-being!

Shortly after you enroll, we will notify you both in the University’s central platform (called Neptun) and in e-mail about the required steps and the deadlines for activating your health insurance.
