Danish International Student Health Insurance Requirements

Denmark has become a popular international study destination for students from European countries including the United Kingdom, Norway, Germany…… and now from Asia, with a large number of Chinese students. Denmark is a popular destination for students to study for a number of reasons, including modern teaching styles, English familiarity and high academic standards.

One additional reason Denmark is popular with international students – free health insurance!

Well, almost free – as an international student in Denmark, if you get a residence permit and register with the municipal registration office upon your arrival, you will be covered by the Danish national health care within approximately 6-8 weeks.

Therefore, it is advisable to purchase a travel medical health insurance policy for at least the first 8 weeks of your stay, when you will not yet be covered by Danish national health insurance. In addition, you may want to consider purchasing a private plan for the duration of your stay which could provide coverage such as emergency evacuation and repatriation coverage, to cover you on the trip to and from Denmark and any other trips, and for the additional protections a private plan provides.

If you are considering purchasing a travel health insurance plan, or a private insurance plan to cover you in Denmark or abroad, we can offer a range of plans to suit all needs. Please do not hesitate to contact our support team who will be more than happy to assist you.
