Title : Health Insurance for Degree Seeking International Students



Having a health insurance that takes effect in Korea is MANDATORY during your stay in Korea to cover for illness or accident.

Students that do not have an insurance should purchase one immediately.

Students that already have an insurance should check the expiry of the insurance and extend or repurchase as needed.
