Erasmus Mundus Insurance
The IMSE program has a comprehensive student insurance program in place. This insurance program, guarantees an extensive worldwide insurance coverage for incoming and outgoing students.
The policy is catered through the Insurance Passport for Student (IPS) of Lippmann; a well-respected company that provides insurance for a large number of international universities currently taking part in Erasmus Mundus programs. The IPS Primary Insurance is a comprehensive policy that complies with and even exceeds the minimum requirements as set down by the EACEA.
For Erasmus Mundus (EM) scholarship students, the associated premium is included within the scholarship. For these students, the IMSE consortium will take care of the insurance registration on behalf of the student. Non-scholarship students need to take care of their own insurance arrangements.
