Due to the Austrian accreditation of Webster University, our students are entitled to be insured by the Wiener Gebietskrankenkasse (WGKK) at the monthly student tariff of EURO 55. There is no age limit and your insurance will be valid the day after application.
Make sure that you have either private or travel health insurance to cover you until at least the end of your first month at Webster, as one of the documents required to apply for Austrian insurance will only be available in the third week of the term. You will need to apply for your Austrian health insurance before your private insurance expires.*
