When preparing for your stay in Leiden, it is very important to ensure that you will have sufficient healthcare insurance during your stay. UAS Leiden highly recommends that you contact your own health insurance company before travelling to the Netherlands, and find out exactly what you need to do to be properly insured against medical expenses in the Netherlands.
Third party liability insurance
It is also advisable to take out third-party liability insurance. In the Netherlands you are responsible for paying the costs of damages resulting from any accident you cause. As these costs can be extremely high, we strongly urge foreign students coming to the Netherlands to take out third-party liability insurance ( wettelijke aansprakelijkheidsverzekering), which will cover all expenses in many cases.
For foreign students going to study in the Netherlands, AON offers special insurance packages.
