Healthcare- and liability insurance, and medical care

TU Delft advises all students to have sufficient medical insurance and personal liability insurance. It is your own responsibility to be sufficiently insured on the date of your departure to the Netherlands.

Sufficient medical insurance (in Dutch “ziektekostenverzekering”) covers medical expenses up to the Dutch cost price. The personal liability insurance (in Dutch “aansprakelijkheidverzekering/AVP”) is meant to insure you for damage you accidentally cause to someone else. 

Dutch legislation on healthcare insurance

Which healthcare insurance you need depends on your nationality and whether you have a part time job or paid internship in the Netherlands next to your studies.
