Insurance for students at CIS

Accident insurance at school

Covers students during school time in case of severe injury – invalidity or death. The school’s insurance does not cover rehabilitation expenses or additional treatment in private hospitals. If you wish such additional coverage, please arrange for it through your family’s insurance company

Travel insurance

Covers medical treatment when travelling on school trips. Thus the school’s travel insurance will cover treatment on a public hospital of illness/injury which might occur on the trip as well as transport home to Denmark if necessary. The school’s insurance covers liability insurance as well but does not cover baggage or long-term rehabilitation/compensation for injuries (the Danish name for this type of insurance is ‘ulykkeforsikring’); if you wish such additional coverage, please arrange for it through your family’s insurance company. All students eligible to obtain the EU-blue insurance card need to bring this on all school trips outside Denmark but within EU. The card can be requested either at or at the kommune
