Health Insurance

All International (Non-EU/EEA) Students registering with TU Dublin for the first time from September 2020 will need to purchase their own private medical health insurance as required by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Services (INIS).

Full details of the INIS requirements in relation to private medical insurance can be found in the below document  (please read this document carefully to familiarise yourself with their requirements as they may change occasionally).

Private Medical Insurance for full-time Non-EEA Students 

TU Dublin does not currently provide a Group Medical Insurance Scheme and all students coming to and residing in Ireland for the purpose of study will need to purchase medical health insurance or travel insurance in the case of 1st year of entry students (see above link for details).

Options for Private Medical Insurance

  • Purchase health or travel insurance in your home country (1st year option only):
    • Please note insurance purchased in your own country must include cover for repatriation
    • You will also need to ensure that it is valid in Ireland and in any other countries you plan to travel to during your studies. (Please note: It is the responsibility of the Student to provide evidence of medical insurance in English as students may not be registered by the Immigration Authorities).
  • Purchase health insurance from providers operating in Ireland that include repatriation: 

Please note that all insurance policies will have different levels of cover and students should ensure that they purchase a level of insurance to cover their specific health needs and requirements for the duration of your studies. Please also note that pre-existing conditions are generally not covered on insurance policies.
