Why should I get Student Internship Insurance?

  • Your Travel Insurance covers travel, including study and exchange programs and unpaid internships abroad, for up to 60 days. However, if it lasts longer, we recommend you to take out Student Internship Insurance because it covers the whole period.
  • In some countries, you can buy insurance through the universities, but you can't be sure it covers everything. For this reason, we encourage you to look further down the page to learn more about what Student Internship Insurance covers.

Need more answers?

When you take out Student Internship Insurance, the host university will probably require documentation to certify your insurance coverage. You can get a form from the department at that university. It is called a Waiver, and we can fill it out for you.

Has your question been answered?

You will receive the following documents:

  • Insurance certificate, in Danish, confirming that you bought the insurance. You will not receive an insurance policy (contract), as is the case with other types of insurance. The certificate supplements your Travel Insurance with us.
  • Insurance coverage confirmation in English.
  • An invoice by email, you cannot use NETS to pay for it. It may seem possible when you buy it, but that is not the case.
Has your question been answered?

As you can see in the form above, the insurance covers your items up to DKK50,000 against fire, water, and theft during the period you selected.

The insurance also covers personal liability, that is, if you accidentally hurt people or damage their things.

Are you bringing things that exceed the sum?

  • If you have home contents insurance with us and you study, we cover the items you carry with you up to DKK50,000 for up to 6 months from the day you leave Denmark. We indicate it on your insurance policy, letting you know you have insurance coverage.
  • If you do not have it with us, student internship insurance covers the stuff you bring on your study program up to DKK50,000. The insurance covers your things during the period you selected on your insurance quote.

Please, write to us here.

Has your question been answered?

Not everyone can buy it. There are two conditions:

  • IDA membership is required to take it out.
  • The insurance only covers unpaid study programs, exchange, and internships.

If you are a PhD student, you cannot take out this insurance because you get paid.

If your trip is of another nature - e.g., backpacking - you cannot buy the insurance either. If this is your project, we recommend that you prolongate your Travel Insurance. Read more about how long your travel insurance covers and how to extend it.
