If you are a non-EU or non-EEA student we recommend you take out voluntary health insurance with the National Health Fund (Polish: Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia, NFZ) and pay insurance premiums that stand at EUR 15 a month. You can find more details on the National Health Fund’s website:

Within this insurance scheme students are entitled to free public medical care and have access to all public health facilities.

Additionally, all foreign students can take out an additional accident insurance (Polish: NWW) with one of the insurance companies.
