All our students, doesn't matter if they are EU or not, must hold valid insurance covering risks related to health, accidents, death, permanent invalidity, civil responsibility (including travel assistance) while they are outside their home country.
Personal medical cover is required in most European countries, even in those that have a public health system. An insurance card will also be required by local authorities in order to obtain a residence permit.
For all the Erasmus Mundus (EMJMD) students: a mandatory insurance coverage, covering risks related to health, accidents, death, permanent invalidity, civil responsibility, is provided to all students (whether they're scholarship holders or not) by the InterMaths Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) Consortium.
Such insurance complies with the minimum requirements set out by EACEA
To all the other students (Double Degree programmes, for instance). If you are non-EU, note that you will have to purchase a valid insurance policy that complies with some minimum requirements established by the consortium and that will allow you to obtain a visa and a residence permit.
