All outgoing students from Lund University are covered by Kammarkollegiet’s Student UT insurance. This covers most eventualities (robbery, accident, illness and emergency dental care, etc.) from the moment you get on the plane/train to when you are back in Lund. NB! It does not include cancellation insurance for your trip. You can obtain this via your home insurance, or by paying for the air ticket with a credit card, for example. Check with your bank and your insurance company to find out what conditions apply in your case. Make sure to read the small print in your insurance policy in good time before setting off. Remember that you must get a certificate of insurance from the International Office before your departure.
European Health Insurance card
If you are a Europaean citizens and are going to study at one of our European partner universities, do contact the Social Insurance office in your home country in good time and ask for a health insurance card. This entitles you to the same healthcare as all local residents in the country.
