Payments and healthcare insurance
Healthcare must always be paid for, either directly by the patient or by means of a health insurance policy. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that he/she has an adequate health insurance policy.

Social Security System
Many students can benefit from the international agreements in which Portugal participates in order to gain access to the Portuguese Social Security System, and through it to the National Health System, particularly within the framework of bilateral and multilateral country agreements. For further information about conventions and agreements that give access to the Portuguese social security system, please contact the social security services in your home country before travelling to Portugal.
