Student Health Care
As a student you can come to the Student Health Care to get advice and support from wellness coaches and counsellors during your period of study. All visits are free of charge; the staff are bound by confidentiality and they make no records.
Due to the Coronavirus the Student Health Care is now offering appointments only by telephone or digital meetings through Zoom or Teams.
If for any reason you don’t feel well or need advice and support you can book an appointment. Below you will find examples of what you may want to talk about, but you don’t need to know exactly what you need help with:
- depression, worry, anxiety or feaer of speaking
- difficulties with studies, performance anxiety or always wanting to put things off until the last minute
- crises in life, deaths, illnesses
- relationship problems
- health and lifestyle matters such as sleep, food, exercise, alcohol or tobacco.
If you fall ill
At the Student Health Care there is no medical health care provided. If you fall ill you can contact the 1177 health care guide or your health care centre. Bear in mind that it’s important to register your illness with Försäkringskassan (Swedish Social Insurance Service) since it may affect your study loans. This mainly applies to Swedish citizens.
Insurance for students
As a student you are insured against accidents during your period of studies and also for travel between your home and campus. The insurance also provides cover when studying from home.
If you are an international student at MDH you might be covered by additional insurances also covering more situations. Please note that the insurance only provides a cover when you are studying in Sweden, not if you choose to leave the country while studying on distance.
As a student you should also have a household insurance. Most insurance companies have special rates for students. Contact different insurance companies for more information.
