Medical Insurance

All international students must have an international medical insurance for the whole duration of their stay at CETT-UB:

  • Students from countries in the European Economic Area (European Union nations, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and who are entitled to social security benefits in their own country should submit their European health insurance card. This card is issued by the respective national health authorities and entitles the holder to medical care in Spain. Students must have an insurance that covers accidents and repatriation. It can be taken out at the home country at individual level or by the home institution.

  • All other students must have a private international medical insurance for the duration of their stay at CETT-UB. Confirmation should be obtained from the insurer, in Spanish or English, indicating that the coverage applies for the duration of the study period in Spain. Medical attention, accidents and repatriation services need to be covered by the insurance.

  • Insurance is available from Ferrer & Ojeda, the University of Barcelona's preferred partner.
