Insurance Policy at Ajou University


All International students studying at Ajou University are required to purchase health insurance to
protect them from unexpected healthcare expenses in the event of an accident, as well as to manage
their health while staying in Korea. Also, all international students are required to be enrolled in an
insurance plan in line with the Korean governments policy of mandatory health insurance for
international students. The insurance must cover the full study period, from the date of departure
to the date of return. Please note that it is the students responsibility to have the insurance, and the
student is also responsible for any issue that may be arisen if he/she is not insured.
Students can purchase health insurance from their home countries, or they can purchase it through
the Office of International Affairs (OIA) at Ajou. Ajou University has made an arrangement with
Seimnuri Insurance Company so that students can quickly and conveniently receive health
insurance benefits when they receive medical attention at designated medical facilities.
If you plan to purchase the insurance at Ajou University, you are required to apply online at
www.foreign-insurance.kr. After online application, you need to pay the insurance fee directly to the
insurance company. The insurance company will present at the orientation and you may directly pay
the insurance on the day. Please note, however, that the insurance will be valid from the date you
pay the premium, and thus we recommend you to wire-transfer the premium before your departure
or enroll another travel insurance which will cover your travel from your country to Ajou.
In case students enroll the health insurance individually, it must comply with the requirements listed
under the section Limit of the compensation.
We ask that students submit the copy of the insurance contract within the first week of the semester.
If a student does not submit a copy of the health insurance, the issuance of documents such as
transcripts, Certificate of Enrollment, various verification and participating in E-classes will be
restricted.
Before you purchase the insurance, please read the insurance information below at:
