Intercultural competences, professionalism and communication are key competences in health care. Therefore, the health university of applied sciences tyrol not only creates structural conditions for their students to go abroad but also encourages them to gain international experiences. Especially in the bachelor's degree programmes, where practical courses are an integrative part of the study programmes.

Information on insurance

The Erasmus+ programme does not automatically provide insurance cover, thus, for your Erasmus+ stay abroad, you will have to proof of a minimum of health, liability and accident insurance cover.

Health insurance

The European Health Insurance Card is on the reverse of your e-card and entitles you to medically necessary services within the public health system during a temporary stay in the EU countries. However, it is not an alternative to travel insurance. Thus, it is advisable to take care of an additional insurance cover (travel and/or accident insurance during free time, repatriation insurance, etc.). It is your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient insurance cover.

Further information

Accident and liability insurance

As a member of the Austrian National Union of Students (ÖH) and as a student of the health university of applied sciences tyrol, you are automatically covered by a liability and accident insurance, provided that the ÖH fee has been paid.

Does not apply in connection with cases of damage during free time and postgraduate internships. For overseas internships, additional insurance is recommended.
