Student Health Insurance

Student Insurance

STUST requires that ALL International students have supplemental health insurance. This will help to cover the cost of care that cannot be obtained on campus, especially in emergency situations where hospitalization may be required.  In addition, student insurance is included in tuition when students got paid which has already covered parts of costs.

Morever, based on Taiwanese government law, all foreigners have to live in Taiwan longer than 4 months when they enrolled in Taiwanese National Health Insurance. Therefore, all International students should have Health Insurance in their country or buy short-term Insurance either before they came to Taiwan or after arrived.
