University Health Insurance


While studying in Hungary, it is highly recommended to have health insurance; otherwise, you may have to spend hundreds of thousands of Forints on treatments. The international students of our university enrolled before September 2016 may opt for the Metropolitan Study Top health insurance provided by MEDICOVER, while for students joining the University as of September 2016 having this insurance plan is a must.
