Another requirement for enrolment (matriculation) at the University of Augsburg is proof of your health insurance.

There you will receive a certificate which you will need for your matriculation.
If you have private health insurance in your home country, please talk to your insurance company about your stay abroad.
Please also go to another German health insurance company for a detailed consultation.
Students from Turkey: if you do not have a "European Health Insurance Card", you will need the document "T/A 11".
Change in the law as of 2019: European students who are employed in Germany and are paid accordingly are required to take out a student insurance policy in Germany (retroactive from the moment the student started working).
The European insurance is no longer sufficient here.
Please note: Erasmus+participants have to ensure sufficient insurance cover themselves! Please make sure that your insurance covers a medically necessary return transport to your home country Accident insurance, as well as personal liability insurance, can also be useful.
The University of Augsburg does not guarantee the accuracy of this information. Regardless of this information, the regulations of your health insurance or the regulations of the German health insurance always apply.
