Health Insurance

All students taking part in the ESC Semester Program are required to have international health insurance for the duration of the program.
Depending on the exchange through which you apply, the costs may or may not be included in your program fee (see below).

The local insurance which is required by the French government of all residents in France (Social Securité) is included in the program fee for ALL students, no matter which exchange program. Please note, this insurance does not cover everything that comprehensive international health and medical insurance covers.
