Insurance

Personal injury insurance

All students at Chalmers are covered during school hours and direct travel between their place of residence and the university through Chalmers’ agreement with Kammarkollegiet (the Swedish Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency) on personal injury insurance.

The personal injury insurance provides good basic cover including personal injuries through accidents and in some cases illness through contagion. For comprehensive insurance cover, students must take out their own accident  insurance to cover other times/leisure time as well as home insurance.

Please make sure that your insurance company is informed about your stay in Sweden. As the policies regarding accident, medical or property insurance vary from one country to another, you are advised to find out what applies in your case. The rules can be different depending on your citizenship and the length of your studies in Sweden.

Fee-paying students

Students who pay tuition fees are covered by the FAS+ policy. This policy includes accident coverage, illness coverage, dental care, home transport, liability coverage, legal protection and property coverage. The insurance is valid 24 hours a day in the Schengen area with the exception of the Property cover in FAS+, which is only valid in Sweden.

Exchange students 

Like all other students, incoming exchange students at Chalmers are insured during school hours and direct travel between their place of residence and the university. The insurance is valid in Sweden and covers primarily accidents during school hours and travel to and from the school.
 
Incoming exchange students are also covered by Student IN. This requires the student to study or train within the frame of an exchange agreement, i.e., an agreement must have been drawn up between Chalmers and the foreign seat of learning.
 
Student IN includes a limited amount of accident cover during leisure time, the right to compensation for emergency medical care or emergency dental care (not EU), home transport cover, liability protection and legal protection.
