Health Insurance

Health insurance rates for foreign students

Kölner Studierendenwerk has concluded a comparatively reasonable framework contract for private health insurance rates. This contract is available for all foreign college students and participants of college preparation language courses up to the age of 46. The contract with the broker (Union) of this private health insurance (Victoria) can be denounced by students before the end of each month. We recommend contracting the insurance for the longest period of time possible, otherwise students run the risk of the insurance company not extending the contract in the case of illness.


European Health Insurance Card

EU-foreigners who are insured in their home countries can apply for the European Health Insurance Card through their own insurance and use this card in Germany as if it were a German health insurance card. You can get information and documents at the German student union, at public college preparation schools, at International Offices and at the social counselling service of the student union of Cologne.
