All the international students are required to have their private insurance that covers their whole stay in Korea prior to beginning their studies at KU.
It is now required by the Korean Ministry of Education that ALL incoming internatio nal students are covered by private heal th/medical insurance during their stay in Korea. Those who do not submit a copy will NOT be allowed to register for courses at KU and we will not be responsible for the consequences.
Students must submit the copy of the insurance during the specified period of time.
In extenuating circumstances, students can purchase insurance upon arrival from private insurance agencies such as
- AIG (http://www.aig.co.kr/eng)
- Dongbu (http://www.dongbulife.com/eng)
- Samsung (http://www.samsunglife.com/companyeng)
However, please be noted that the co-payment tends to be expensive and coverage is limited.
We do not introduce specific insurance company, it is students decision to purchase the insurance
