Insurance scheme

All the Erasmus Mundus students will have health and accident insurance coverage.

Students from the European Union (EU) countries and the European Economic Area (EEA) are also covered by the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which entitles them to have access to the national social security system as any Portuguese citizen. In order to have access to this scheme, students should contact their own Social Security Office to have the respective card issued, before arriving in Portugal.
