For Aalto Exchange students
- Make sure that you have a valid health insurance. EU-citizens must have a European Health Insurance Card with them (from the home country) and are strongly recommended to have a private insurance too.
- Make sure your health insurance will cover also covid-19 related medical conditions. Students with valid health insurance can use private health care clinics for health services (please also check with your insurance company if they have agreement hospitals in Finnish capital region).
- As an EU citizen with the European Health Insurance Card, you should receive medically necessary treatment and you have the right to use the municipal (public) health care. Medically necessary treatment means treatment that cannot wait until you return home.
For more information, please contact your own school's exchange coordinator.
