The insurance applies during direct travel between the home country and Sweden, during the education period, as well as two weeks prior to the start of the studies and two weeks after the end of the studies. The insurance applies 24 hours a day in Sweden only. The insurance also includes a basic property cover.
Since the insurance is for emergencies only, students are recommended to obtain a complementary insurance.
Please note: if students who are in need of other medical assistance that is not an emergency, that is citizens of a Nordic country, EU/EEA country, Switzerland, or other country with which a convention regarding medical benefits exists, must have an EU card or similar from their home country. These students will be expected to pay the same health care fees as Swedish residents.
Details about the insurance terms and conditions can be found at the JU website.
