Personal injury insurance

As a student at KTH, you are insured during school hours and during direct travel between your home and university premises.

Personal injury insurance for students during your studies

All enrolled KTH students are covered by a personal injury insurance during the time you are on university premises and on journeys to and from the university. The insurance applies to all instances where you (the student) are participating in activities arranged by KTH, e.g. during a placement (internship) or at a workplace where you are carrying out your degree project, within Swedens borders. The personal injury insurance does not apply during the orientation and introduction period (during this period, students must arrange for their own accident insurance).

Kammarkollegiet's insurance is provided by The Swedish Board of Student Finance (CSN) and covers all students that are studying at a Swedish university. You as a student are not required to do anything in order to be covered by this insurance. The personal injury insurance does not apply to Ph.D. students, who are insured through their contract of employment.

If you need a certificate that you are insured, please contact your master coordinator.
