All prospective exchange students must show proof of insurance along with their applications. Exchange students are advised to purchase insurance which could cover all the medical expenses and expenses while having accident overseas in their home countries before coming to NTU.

Per instruction of the Ministry of Education of Taiwan, international exchange students are not allowed to purchase the standard student insurance plan provided for regular students by the university.
Please provide proof of insurance valid for entire exchange period for the following:
*Accident insurance worth a minimum of TWD 1,000,000 (approx. USD 34,000)

If you hold an Alien Resident Certificate (ARC) and have met the six-month minimum residency requirement, you can choose to join the National Health Insurance (NHI) with limited coverage. For those who desire an additional form of insurance and have been residing in Taiwan for more than 6 consecutive months with an ARC can join the National Health Insurance (NHI) and receive the same benefits as Taiwanese residents. You must apply directly to your district office during or after the 6th month (not before) of your stay in Taiwan. The premium is around TWD 749 per month. Unfortunately, NHI is currently not open to Mainland Chinese nationals.
