It is mandatory for all enrolled Summer University participants to have adequate health insurance for the duration of their stay in Hungary as a condition of their participation in the program. Participants will be responsible for taking out their own insurance policy, and to also make sure their insurance covers emergency medical costs during their stay in Hungary. Please note that the Summer University office cannot help you in evaluating your insurance policy, therefore you need to consult your insurance provider for such information.

In case it is difficult to find a reliable insurance company in your country, you can contact CEU's travel agency for a health insurance (it is obligatory for your visa application). It will cost you 660 HUF/day (~ 2 Euro).  
You need to contact BCD Travel at The insurance needs to be pre-paid, through a secure link, which the BCD Travel will provide individually.

Upon arrival, during the registration participants will be required to sign a declaration about their medical insurance. 

Submitting Your Insurance

Insurance copies should be submitted to the SUN office via the Applicant Portal, during the Onboarding procedure. Please make sure that the scan/photo of your insurance is a readable good quality. If you have difficulty uploading the document, please send it by email to your coordinator, or to the SUN office at

Alternative Insurance Options

  • Citizens of the European Union may bring their valid European Health Insurance Card. However, EHIC provides only basic coverage (coverage for emergencies only). 
  • Those insured by the Hungarian Social Security system can provide their TAJ number.
  • If insurance is a service included in your credit card account, please provide us with contact information of your provider’s Assistance Line.

Having your insurance policy copies will allow the SUN office to arrange medical care for you in case of emergency.
