There are other insurance options for foreign students in Turkey, however, to obtain any insurance in Turkey will take time and is often a complex process. You might have medical needs until you obtain a Turkish Health Insurance and you have to pay extraordinary amounts of cash money for any procedure as a foreigner. Therefore, we recommend that you are insured prior to entry to Turkey.
If you consider purchasing a health insurance in Turkey our International Community Office will assist you only after you arrive in Koç University.
ONLY FOR ERASMUS STUDENTS:
