Insurance: Is it compulsory to have health insurance during my study in the Netherlands?

Health insurance is compulsory for every person who lives or works in the Netherlands. You are obliged to take out standard health insurance to cover the cost of, for example, consulting a general practitioner, hospital treatment and prescription medication. 

If you are studying here, you can take the AON student insurance. The university will normally arrange this for you upon your application to study at Wittenborg. In case you do not have an insurance, you can contact our registrar's office at and we can help to arrange it for you.

You are required to have a Dutch public health insurance if you have an income from a (part-time) job or internship. You can find more information here:
