Health Insurance
Students from countries outside Europe and countries which the Federal Republic of Germany does not have a social security agreement with must provide evidence of sufficient health insurance. To do so, they can take out student health insurance with a statutory health insurance company here in Germany. Otherwise, they must present their insurance contract to a German statutory health insurance company to obtain exemption from compulsory health insurance. As representatives from German statutory health insurance companies usually attend the orientation events, evidence of health insurance can also be obtained directly at Munich University of Applied Sciences.
