    Health insurance

    The Danish healthcare system offers equal and universal access for all residents. As an international student and resident in Denmark you will have access to free medical treatments with some exceptions, such as dental care and physiotherapy.

    The Danish National Health Insurance Card

    International students that are staying in Denmark for at least three months and who have registered with the Danish authorities as described one the page "Residence and CPR-number", are automatically included in the Danish Health Insurance Scheme, which gives you the right to free medical treatment by general practitioners and in hospitals – but not by dentists.

    When you register at the Citizen Service Center you will receive a personal registration number, which also serves as your health insurance number. After your registration you will receive a health insurance card. Remember always to bring the card along when you see your doctor or your dentist. The name, address and phone number of your chosen doctor will be printed on the card.

    Here's what the card looks like - often called "the yellow card":

    Other insurance

    PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE ('ANSVARSFORSIKRING')

    Aalborg University requests all international students to take out a public liability insurance policy to cover expenses for compensating injuries to others or damages to others' belongings.

    PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE ('ULYKKESFORSIKRING')

    Aalborg University recommends all international students to take out a personal accident insurance to cover expenses in case of personal injury.
    Students, who participate in laboratory work during their studies, are insured by Aalborg University. This insurance covers injuries suffered during laboratory experiments, and other laboratory activities during fieldtrips, excursions, internships, etc. However, you should still take out a personal accident insurance that will cover you outside the laboratory.

    HOUSE CONTENTS INSURANCE ('INDBOFORSIKRING')

    Aalborg University recommends all international students to take out a house contents insurance to cover loss or theft of personal belongings.
