Students from EU/EFTA countries
Students from EU/EFTA countries are entitled to health care in Poland provided they hold a valid health insurance in the insurance system of their state. Holders of valid European Health Insurance Cards are eligible for free-of-charge health care. Detailed information on health care for citizens of EU/EEA states can be found at the website of Poland's National Health Fund: https://www.ekuz.nfz.gov.pl.
Students from outside EU/EFTA
Students from outside EU/EFTA are advised to buy personal international medical insurance prior to their arrival in Poland. Otherwise, they can buy insurance under commercial terms or enter into a health insurance agreement with Poland's National Health Fund (NFZ) and pay insurance premiums, approx. EUR 15 per month. Within this insurance scheme, students are eligible for free-of-charge health care and can obtain health care in University and other medical facilities. In addition, all international students can buy additional personal accidents insurance. Detailed relevant information can be found at the website of Poland's National Health Fund: www.nfz.gov.pl.
International students of Polish origin from outside UE/EFTA
A student who is not a citizen of a European Union member state or of a member state of the European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA) and is recognised as a person of Polish origin in the meaning of repatriation provisions under a decision of a consul or has a Polish Citizen Card, can optionally enter into a health insurance agreement with Poland's National Health Fund. Health insurance premiums are paid by the University on filling out an application for health insurance under the NFZ scheme.
