Insurance during school hours
All students at University West are insured by the state insurance company Kammarkollegiet during school hours, travels to and from the university, and during any activities performed by the university. This insurance covers emergency health care in case of an accident. This insurance does not cover emergency health care due to accidents during students' spare time, nor does it cover regular health or dental care.
Insurance outside school hours
Incoming exchange and fee-paying degree students registered at the university are covered by special insurances (Student IN and FAS) that are valid during study time and free time throughout the duration of studies, as well as two weeks prior to the start of studies and two weeks after the end of studies. More detailed information about the conditions as well as forms can be found at the Kammarkollegiet website.
This insurance offers medical and dental coverage, home transport, third party liability and legal protection. You will be charged a higher fee to see a doctor, but you can claim the cost from the insurance company by submitting a claim form signed by the International Office.
Please note that the insurance provided by the university does not cover loss of property. You have to buy your own insurance for this.
