Important information on health insurance cover as a student in Germany:
Every student enrolling at a German public university is basically required by German law (Social Security Statutes / SGB, paragraph 5, section 1, no. 9) to take out a statutory health insurance (Gesetzliche Krankenversicherung).

This insurance will cost you about € 85.00 / month. There are some exceptions to this law. You are legally required (according to Paragraph 5, Section 1, No. 1 of the Residence Act / Aufenthaltsgesetz) to submit proof of a valid health insurance cover for registration at Anhalt University and for successful application for a residence permit in Germany.




Please NOTE: We can therefore recommend to only taking out travel insurances for the short time after your immediate arrival in Germany but not for longer periods of time or your entire stay at Anhalt (enrolment at Anhalt University taking effect on either 1 October for the winter semester or 1 April for the summer semester).
