Health Insurance

In order to get residence permit and stay in Ankara University dormitories all international students should submit a valid health insurance that covers health expenses in Turkey.

Students can buy this health insurance from a private company registered in Turkey or their home country, or can join Turkish General Health Insurance System.

Please consider that if students buy health insurance from their home country, there is a need of validation in Turkey.
