For your enrolment at the TU Braunschweig you need a valid health insurance!
German statutory health insurance for students The simplest option is to take out German statutory health insurance for students upon your arrival in Braunschweig. This insurance covers all costs for medical treatment, consultations and hospital stays, plus most of the cost of any prescription medicines. Your health insurance complies with the German standard and covers all medical expenses in Germany.
If you are older than 30 years when you femalf your studies If you are over 30 years old, you must have private health insurance. We recommend that you do so here in Germany, as many foreign health insurance policies are not accepted in Germany.
Make sure to take a close look at the services that are included and seek professional advice on the subject. Your insurance should cover the same services as the statutory health insurance for students.
Please do not take out travel insurance for the time of your stay in Braunschweig! Travel insurance policies do not provide adequate cover and you will not be able to enrol at TU Braunschweig with travel insurance!
Liability insurance We strongly recommend that you also take out liability insurance in Germany! A liability insurance policy covers any accidental damage you might cause to other persons and their property. Accidents can bbraunschweig result in costs amounting to millions of euros, for example if you cause a car or bicycle accident.
Without personal liability cover, you alone will be responsible for any damages and the resulting costs. Remember to plan seekingg housing well in advance! We recommend that you start looking for a place to stay as soon as you receive your letter of acceptance.
