  • Medical and accident insurance
  • Transfer/repatriation coverage in case of illness or death

VERY IMPORTANT: This Private Health Insurance is not the European Health Insurance Card. However, you need both for your exchange.

Incoming students can take out an insurance of their choice (with at least the two guarantees mentioned above) or they can also take out the insurances offered by our University called “Oncampus Estudia” or the Universitas Mundu insurance on a trip. You will find in the documentation the information about the coverages that Universitas Mundu has ( THIS SERVICE IS ONLY VALID FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE NOT IN SPANISH UNIVERSITIES ).
