Purchasing German Statutory Health Insurance
Student health insurance costs around EUR 105,- per month and it usually has to be purchased for the entire semester.
Important: The winter semester at TU Darmstadt starts in October, the summer semester in April. That’s why the German statutory health insurance is only valid from 1 October (or 1 April). If you are travelling to Germany earlier, for example in order to participate in our intensive German language courses in September or March, you need to have valid travel insurance for this period. Please refer to your health insurance in your home country for information on purchasing travel insurance.
The German National Association for Student Affairs (Deutsches Studentenwerk DSW) has created a guide with some useful information regarding health insurance for foreign students in Germany.
