Personal Injury Insurance
All students, regardless of nationality, who are admitted to and pursue their undergraduate, graduate or doctoral studies at Jönköping University, are covered by the Personal Injury Insurance for students. The insurance applies in Sweden and covers injuries during school hours and during travel to and from the location where school hours are spent. It does not cover injuries during leisure time or medical treatment costs during illness.
The liability insurance includes damage or loss caused by the student during the time when the student resides at a work site, as part of ongoing training. The insurance is valid worldwide with the exception of the USA and Canada.
Once a damage has occurred it should be reported as soon as possible to the school. The insurance covers damage or loss to up to 10 million SEK.
If you need health care in Sweden different rules apply depending on which country you are from and if you are registered in the population register in Sweden. Always make sure that you have adequate health insurance. If you do not have insurance, you will have to pay the entire cost yourself if you need health care, which can be very expensive. Some countries have agreements with Sweden regarding medical benefits and in that case you pay the same health care fees as a person resident in Sweden.
Please contact the Swedish Social Insurance Office (Försäkringskassan) or visit their website for information regarding your country.
Please also note that if you plan to travel to other countries in Europe, other rules may apply regarding health care fees and you always have to make sure that you have adequate health insurance coverage.
