Health Insurance

We want you to be healthy and safe when you’re studying at Hochschule Worms! According to regulations in Germany, you must have valid health insurance from outside of Germany or get insured once you arrive in Germany in order to be permitted to matriculate at the university. Your insurance needs to be valid for the entire duration of your studies (until the end of February for winter semester studies or until the end of August for summer semester studies).
