Health insurance

Dutch law requires everyone living in the Netherlands to have health insurance. Students must themselves make sure that they have adequate coverage (i.e. health care costs and personal and professional liability).
If the insurance you have in your own country provides full cover for medical costs and legal liability while you are in the Netherlands, you should bring with you a statement in English detailing the insurance cover.
If you do not have adequate coverage, you may want to consider special student insurance with the following insurance companies whose policies have been checked by Nuffic:
- Insurance Passport for Students (IPS) 
- AON Students Insurance
