EU citizens are insured on the basis of the European Health Insurance Card when they are in another member state and are, from the point of view of social security, entitled to the same rights and have the same obligations as citizens of that given member state. Although EU-students may be able to use their insurances in Hungary, a private medical insurance is recommended to international students.

The treatment of foreign students is as follows:

  • if the student is insured by one of the insurance companies the university has a contract with (Generali Providencia) all expenses are covered by the insurance company
