In Spain, the health and medical assistance is universal, so in case of any emergency, students will be assisted in any health center or hospital. However, in order to avoid any extra expenses or any other problem, Costa de Valencia recommends all the students to ask for a medical insurance compatible with the Spanish health system before travelling to Spain.
For the students from any EU country, it is enough to ask for the European Health Card in their home country. With this card, the health and medical assistance is guaranteed in the whole Spanish territory.
For those students from non-EU countries, we recommend to purchase a health insurance in their home country, making sure that it is compatible with the Spanish health system and with the goal of the travel.
