Hungarian students with a Hungarian ID/passport and address card indicating a permanent address are eligible for the Hungarian State Health Insurance ('TAJ') provided by the Hungarian State.

  • If you are enrolled in programs accredited in Hungary, your TAJ is automatically arranged and covered by the Educational Authority (Oktatási Hivatal).
    • For MA students: the insurance is arranged for the whole period of study.
    • For PhD students: the insurance is arranged for the period of 36 months (or until your student status is changed to “doktorandusz”).
