Insurance for Outgoing Students

From 1 January 2021, all outgoing exchange students will be covered by Kammarkollegiets Student Out insurance.

This insurance applies for students at JU that are going on an exchange (studies/internships) through their study program at JU, to a receiving university/company that has an agreement with JU. Since this is a group insurance, it offers a basic medical and travel cover. As each individual's need for insurance may differ, please make sure to read the full conditions from Kammarkollegiet.

*** Please note that some host universities may require you to purchase their own campus insurance as well.***

European Health Insurance Card (EHIC):
If you are travelling to a country within the EU or certain other countries, please make sure to have the EHIC with you.

More information about the EHIC can be found on Försäkringskassans homepage or you can contact the relevant authorities from your home country (within the EU).

The Kammarkollegiets Student Out insurance is valid:

  • Only in the country of your study destination as well as your direct trip to your study destination.
  • Two weeks before the start of your study period until two weeks after your study period.
  • ***PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning on travelling to other countries other than your study destination you will need to arrange a private insurance for this period. ***
  • When students are doing an internship included in the exchange semester abroad, however there are the following exceptions when the insurance is not valid (students must then purchase a private health insurance) :
    1. The internship is done abroad outside of regular semester dates in the summer and there is no registration on an internship course in Ladok at JU for that specific time.
    2. The internship is done abroad but not within an exchange programme and not mandatory to do abroad within the study program at JU.
    3. The internship is done in Sweden.

    More information about what the insurance covers can be found on Kammarkollegiets homepage. From 1 July 2021 there will be some changes in the insurance. Please visit Kammarkollegiets homepage to find the updated conditions.
