If you live in Holland (The Netherlands), you are obliged by law to have health insurance. The third party liability insurance cover (with global coverage of up to EUR 1,250,000) is strongly recommended, as well as the repatriation insurance cover. Fontys University of Applied Science cannot be held liable if a student/trainee does not have (sufficient) insurance cover. Every student enrolled at Fontys is expected to have fulfilled his/her insurance obligations.
By law everyone in The Netherlands must be insured for medical expenses. The type of health insurance cover that you will require will depend on your personal situation. It is very important to ensure you are properly insured during your stay at Fontys.
