If you come from an EU/EAA country or from Switzerland, you should bring a European Health Insurance Card
with you. The card ensures that you will get health care services with
the same prices as Finnish citizens. All exchange students must have
their own free-time insurance which covers accidents and illnesses
outside school time.
If you come from a non-EU/EEA country you need to have a sufficient health insurance coverage. Further information at the Finnish Immigration Service. Seinäjoki UAS recommends the following insurance: Marsh Student Insurance Program (SIP).
