Here are all the flyers of relevance, with information you will need at the beginning of your programme on insurance cover at the university.


By the way:

If you are a German or EU citizen, you can also enrol here as a doctoral candidate. If you are an international student, please go to the International Office for information on enrolment in a doctoral programme. You need to pay the normal semester fee that covers a semester ticket (bus fare) and many other benefits. We urge anyone on a fellowship to register as a doctoral student, otherwise you will have no accident insurance to cover activities at the Universität zu Lübeck.
