Do you dream of travelling, discovering a new culture, making friends from all over the world (and studying abroad)? The Erasmus programme is for you and you are right to try the adventure! It’s a very rewarding experience. This will allow you to mature enormously in the space of a few months. This programme will benefit from the European recovery plan after the Covid-19 pandemic and offer many opportunities in the years to come.
Before you leave, consider taking out international student insurance so that your stay is peaceful. This type of insurance can complement the coverage you will be able to benefit from with the insurance of your country of origin which operates under certain conditions outside your country of origin.
Prepare well for your start in Erasmus
As an Erasmus student, student social security covers you abroad. But beware, this is not the vital card that you will need to use but the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)whose application must be made at least 15 days before departure.
Thanks to the EHIC, your medical expenses will be partly covered by social security. Please note that all your expenses will not be reimbursed because the European Health Insurance Card is not sufficient to cover your health costs abroad. In France medical costs are among the cheapest in Europe. Our European comrades charge much higher rates.
For example, to supplement your health reimbursements, you can take out student insurance abroad with a much higher reimbursement rate.
For example, at Mondassur, you are offered to subscribe to Junior International. This contract covers in addition to the European health insurance card, 100% of the actual costs and without deductible. You will also be covered in case of repatriation which is never covered by the EHIC. Thus, for a visit to the doctor in Germany at 76 euros, the social security will reimburse you 16 euros, Mondassur reimburses you the supplement: you will not have to pay anything!
