Knowing important rules

Health Insurance

The German healthcare system with its dense network of highly qualified doctors is considered one of the best in the world. As a student in Germany, you benefit from optimum medical care and affordable insurance coverage. Either with an inexpensive compulsory student insurance policy with a German health insurance fund. Or with existing health insurance coverage policy from your home country which is recognised in Germany. Whatever the case: you cannot register at a German university without health insurance.

Registration / Enrolment

To study at a German university, you have to register or enrol. Once you have done this, you are entitled to make use of all the services available at your university.         



Reporting to the Authorities

Once you have found accommodation and registered at university, you have to fulfil a number of other formalities.
