HEALTH INSURANCE

A basic health insurance for Hungary is a prerequisite for registration at the University.

A special insurance is provided for our students, and its fee is included in the tuition fee. The service includes an English speaking call center, GP-service and treatment at the Polyclinics and Clinics of Semmelweis University. As long as you pay your tuition fee each semester and you are a registered active student, this insurance is automatically renewed until the end of your studies. The Hungarian health insurance provided by the University is only valid from the date of enrolling at the University.

The health insurance is automatically suspended, if the student registers for a passive semester.

EXEMPTIONS

Exemption from courses and examinations may be granted on the basis of the student’s previously documented studies or additional credit-by-examinations stipulated by the departments. The student must submit all relevant documents at the departments concerned. Exemption may be granted by the Educational Committee Board of each Faculty on the basis of the department’s written prior approval.

Please find the necessary exemption forms of the different faculties under the next home-pages:

Application deadline: the last day of the registration week.

Please note that successful completion of a checking exam can be prescribed as a further condition of getting an exemption. The departments can request you to prove your knowledge in the subject concerned!

No reduction of tuition fee is granted in case of exemptions.

STUDENT CARD (“Diákigazolvány”)

In its possession you are entitled to

  • buy students’ monthly tickets for the public transport (metro, bus, tram, trolley, HÉV). Ask for a DIÁK BÉRLET,

You can use the temporary card until the issuing of a permanent one. Please bear in mind, that student discounts (e.g. at public transport) can be only claimed in the possession of a temporary or permanent card, so you will need to use regular fare tickets in the first month.
