TK - Your health insurance partner at Jacobs University

Take care of your studies - we take care of the bureaucracy!

TK is one of Germany’s leading public health insurance providers. As a health insurance partner for Jacobs University, many students choose to be covered by TK during their studies. Health insurance is mandatory by law for all residents in Germany, including international students.

You will need to have your public healthcare cover organized before applying for your visa. At Expatrio, we partner with TK to help register international students for public healthcare cover, ensuring they can apply for their visa and are legally covered during their studies.

Students aged under 30 are entitled to a discounted student rate for health insurance. This is available at Expatrio through TK. Although TK offers the same basic cover as most public providers, it also offers English language support and registration as well as vaccination advice, dental hygiene cover, and well-being classes.
