Students


If you are planning on studying in Germany, you are in for an exciting time: Lots of new impressions, lots of things to discover. Students are also principally covered by health insurance in Germany. The AOK helps you to enjoy your studies without a worry. To be precise: We take care of the health insurance. Because if you wish to matriculate to study in Germany, you must have the insurance certificate of a health insurance company. Or a certificate stating that you are exempt from the compulsory insurance with the statutory health insurance. You also receive this from your AOK.

The AOK has set up an online portal – here you can find special tips and advice for foreign students – in various languages of course.

Furthermore, the AOK has German-wide more than 70 branches for students in the vicinity of German universities. They will be only too glad to assist you.
