Non-EU students are advised to guard against the problems of accident or serious ilness by ensuring they have adequate insurance cover for medical treatment and hospitalisation before leaving their home country. Please check with your Insurance Company at home that you are sufficiently insured for your period of study in Ireland.
If students do not already have insurance cover, they may wish to insure with one of the health insurance providers in Ireland: VHI Healthcare (www.vhi.ie), Aviva Health (www.avivahealth.ie), Laya Healthcare (www.layahealthcare.ie) and O'Driscoll O'Neil - contact Amy Guinan at email address firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.odon.ie/tcd
Students from EU states should apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) in their home country before departure. See also European Health Insurance Card information for visitors to Ireland.
