You should make sure that you have insurance for yourself, your
property and your accommodation. Students at Umeå University
are covered by a personal injury insurance
policy through the Legal, Financial and
Administrative Services Agency (Kammarkollegiet).
The insurance policy appplies in Sweden and provides students
with personal accident cover during study hours, and direct travel

In case you should fall ill during your studies, it is important
that you have a medical insurance policy from your home country
that covers the time of your stay in Sweden. If you do not have
proof of health insurance, any medical care that you seek in Sweden
may become very expensive.
We recommend that all students make sure they are properly
insured before coming to Umeå and do not forget to insure your
property and your accomodation.
In the International Student Guide you can find more
information about insurance.
