All students must have proof of full health insurance coverage for the respective semester/year before they can enroll at a German university.
Please bring along proof of health insurance (European Health Insurance Card or temporary certificate) from the health insurance in your home country. This proof of health insurance must then be accepted by AOK (“Campus Point Freie Universität”) or by any other legally approved health insurance company in Germany.
Important: Please make sure that your health insurance is valid for the entire semester for which you wish to enroll. At Freie Universität Berlin the winter semester runs from October 1 through March 31, and the summer semester from April 1 through September 30. If you stay for the entire academic year, you must make sure that your proof of insurance from your home country is valid for two semesters (Oct. 1 through Sept. 30). Without the proper dates, neither the AOK nor any other German public health insurence company will accept your insurance proof and you will not be able to be enrolled at Freie Universität Berlin.
You can get the exemption from the mandatory German health insurance or - if necessary - you can purchase a legally approved student health assurance e.g. from:
AOK “Campus Point Freie Universität Berlin”
Allgemeine Ortskrankenkasse Berlin (AOK)
Silberlaube KL 26 / 104
