INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMMES (LLP/Erasmus, Non-European Mobility, Santander)
All students must have medical insurance during their stay at the University of Alicante. It is the students responsibility to provide themselves with medical coverage before arrival.
Students from the European Union, the Economic European Area and Switzerland, can apply for the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) in their country of origin.
The EHIC is individual and certifies the holder the right to receive healthcare which is normally covered by the statutory health care system in Spain.
On the other hand, those students who cannot have the EHIC must have private health insurance and contact their insurance company when needed.
Once in Alicante, students that have the EHIC must register with the Department of Health and Social Security near their home address in Alicante, in order to get a General Practitioner (family doctor) assigned to you. A list of all the Health Centres in Alicante is given below:
