Health Insurance

We strongly recommend that you get health insurance to cover your study period in Romania. For students from EU member states, medical care in Romania is provided based on the European Health Insurance Card. If you are a non-EU national, you should inquire whether there is a bilateral agreement on health care between Romania and your country.

If you find yourself in need of medical assistance, you can go to any authorized medical unit, public or private. Some private health insurance companies will refer you to a specific clinic or hospital that they have a contract with. Ask your insurance company to give you the list of all medical units they work with.

Medical Insurance will be paid in each applicant’s native/sending country. In Romania, emergencies are free of charge.
