It is the student's own responsibility to make insurance arrangements for any accident, illness, injury, loss or damage to persons or property that might occur during the study period in Norway.
All international students must have valid health insurance while in Norway. To find out if you should become a member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme or if you should have a social security coverage from your home country, please visit the website Study in Norway.
We advise all students travelling to Norway to consult health insurance authorities in their home country to ensure valid health insurance while in Norway.
We recommend that you have travel insurance when travelling to Norway, as well as for travelling in or outside the country while studying in Norway.
You should also consider if there are other types of insurance you may need while in Norway.
