It is mandatory for all enrolled Summer University participants to have adequate health insurance for the duration of their stay in Hungary as a condition of their participation in the program. Participants will be responsible for taking out their own insurance policy, and to also make sure their insurance covers emergency medical costs during their stay in Hungary. Please note that the Summer University office cannot help you in evaluating you insurance policy, therefore you need to consult your insurance provider for such information.

In case it is difficult to find a reliable insurance company in your country, you can contact CEU's travel agency for a health insurance (it is obligatory for your visa application). It will cost you 660 HUF/day (~ 2 Euro). 
You need to contact BCD Travel. The insurance needs to be pre-paid, through a secure link, which the BCD Travel will provide individually.

Upon arrival, during the registration participants will be required to sign a declaration about their medical insurance and submit a copy of their valid insurance policy.

There are several options for submitting your documents:

  • If your course has a CEU e-Learning page, you can upload the scanned copy of your documents there, on the top of the page, at the “Upload your insurance policy” link. Between mid-April  and the end of May you will receive your login information to this site. In case of technical problems contact Eva Barbara Bodogan for assistance. 
  • If you have difficulty uploading the document please send it to your coordinator by e-mail and/or submit it in hard copy upon arrival.
  • Citizens of the European Union may bring their European Health Insurance Card. However, EHIC provides only basic coverage (coverage for emergencies only).
  • If insurance is a service included in your credit card account, please provide us with contact information of your provider’s Assistance Line.

Having your insurance policy copies will allow the SUN office to arrange medical care for you in case of emergency.
