Insurance coverage during the internshipHide

When planning your stay abroad, find out as much as you can about suitable insurance coverage, as neither the University of Bayreuth nor the DAAD can be held liable for any damage resulting from illness, accident, injury, or from loss of or damage to property in connection with the funded projects.

You must ensure that you have sufficient insurance coverage during your stay - either by taking out private insurance or through the internship institution abroad.

Please note that insurance should cover incidents at the internship site as well as on the way there and from there back home and in addition to your private life.

Therefore, please clarify in advance with your internship host whether you have to provide sufficient health, liability, and accident insurance coverage yourself.

It is possible to book combined health, accident, and personal liability insurance via the DAAD. You wil find more information here.

Internships within the EU

Under certain conditions, members of a statutory health insurance plan in Germany can claim benefits from the regional health insurance fund of the host country on the basis of the social security agreements within the EU.

This requires a special proof of entitlement in the form of the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Such cards are issued by the German health insurance providers and registered with the regional health insurance fund in the host country. As a rule, only medically necessary treatments are covered. It is therefore recommended that you seek detailed advice from your own health insurance provider and, if necessary, take out additional health insurance abroad and travel repatriation insurance.

ERASMUS SMP Internships

As a participant in the Erasmus SMP programme, you must have sufficient insurance coverage during your stay. We recommend taking out supplementary international health insurance and liability insurance that provides coverage in your host country.

While your national health insurance with the European Health Insurance Card generally provides basic coverage for your stay in another EU country, you may find that the coverage provided by the European Health Insurance Card or private insurance is insufficient, especially if repatriation or special medical procedures are needed. For such cases, supplementary private insurance may be beneficial. Therefore, we recommend that you check the conditions of your health insurance before the start of your mobility phase.

With regard to liability insurance, please note that this type of insurance covers damage caused by you during your stay abroad, regardless of whether you are at work or not - such as in the case of an internship abroad. We recommend that you check the conditions of your liability coverage in detail before the start of your mobility phase.

In addition, you should be able to demonstrate that you have accident insurance coverage. Such insurance covers damages at the expense of employees due to accidents at work. In many countries, employees are insured for accidents at work. If the host organization does not offer such protection, we strongly recommend that you take out appropriate insurance coverage before the start of your mobility phase.

Internships outside the EU

For most non-EU countries, supplementary insurance must be taken out. In any case, you should clarify with your health insurance provider whether and to what extent coverage abroad is provided, and how this could be supplemented if necessary.
