Health- and Travel Insurance

All students are responsible for having valid insurance covering the whole duration of their stay – including travel to and from Norway. In addition to health insurance, all students should have valid travel insurance for the duration of their stay in Norway.

In Norway for less than 12 months

If you are staying in Norway for less than 12 months you must obtain medical and travel insurance from your home country for the entire duration of your stay.

In Norway for more than 12 months

If you are staying in Norway for more than 12 months you will automatically become member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme once you have registered your move to Norway and received a Norwegian identity number (fødselsnummer). Please note that you are only covered in Norway – not while travelling to or from Norway, or on travels abroad. Dental care and medicines or treatment of illnesses contracted before arrival in Norway are not covered.

EU/EEA citizens
You must have valid health insurance for the total duration of your stay in Norway (European Health Insurance Card or equivalent), including travels to and from Norway. You are advised to have valid travel insurance from your home country covering the same period.

The European Health Insurance Card entitles you to medically necessary, state-provided healthcare under the same conditions and at the same cost as Norwegian citizens. Please note that you are only covered in Norway – not while travelling to or from Norway, or on travels abroad. Dental care and medicines or treatment of illnesses contracted before arrival in Norway are not covered.
