    Insurance

    Travel insurance

    Aalborg University strongly recommends that you take out a travel insurance for the full period you plan to stay in Denmark prior to leaving your home country. A general travel insurance will cover you against expenses in connection with illness, injuries, medical and dental treatment and usually also in case of theft.

    Health insurance before you obtain a residence permit

    Aalborg University strongly recommends that you take out a health insurance covering the first 4 to 6 weeks you spend in Denmark, since you are not eligible to free medical treatment until you receive your CPR-number health card.

    Health insurance after obtaining a residence permit

    Once you have obtained a residence permit, i.e. if you are staying in Denmark for at least three months, you are automatically included in the Danish Health Insurance Scheme which gives you the right to free medical treatment by general practitioners and in hospitals – but not by dentists.

    When you register at the Citizen Service Center you will receive a personal registration number, which also serves as your health insurance number. After your registration you will receive a health insurance card. Remember always to bring the card along when you see your doctor or your dentist. The name, address and phone number of your chosen doctor will be printed on the card.

    If your stay in Denmark will last less than three months you are not automatically covered by the Danish Health Insurance Scheme. The rules applicable vary according to nationality. 

    Accident insurance

    Aalborg University also recommends that you take out a personal insurance to cover your stay in Denmark. Particularly students with laboratory work should ensure that they hold an insurance that covers accidents involving laboratory work. This insurance covers hospital and rehabilitation costs if you get injured in accidents – e.g. accidental fall or work/laboratory accidents.

    Tuition waivers - only for Master's programmes

    For each September intake the faculties at Aalborg University grant tuition waivers to selected applicants from non-EU/EEA countries. The Faculties grant the tuition waivers based on strategic considerations and academic evaluations. Unfortunately, we cannot inform the students about the tuition waivers before mid-June/July.

    A tuition waiver only covers the tuition fee - the waiver does not include living expenses.

    It is not possible to apply for a tuition waiver.

    The faculties at Aalborg University granted approximately 30 tuition waivers for students admitted on 1 September 2020.

    Bachelor degree students are not eligible for tuition waivers.
