Insurances

All registered students at SLU is covered by the personal injury insurance for students provided by Kammarkollegiet (the Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency). This insurance is free of charge. If you are an Erasmus scholarship holder, your insurance through Kammarkollegiet will be an Erasmus Mundus insurance fulfilling the requirements of the Erasmus programme.

 

To cover damage to belongings, it is recommended to also have a private home insurance (“hemförsäkring”), covering theft, fire, accidents, liability and legal related expenses and travel related costs. Several insurance firms offers this, but usually a Swedish Identity Number (“personnummer”) is required to get such an insurance.
