There’s no need to worry about getting all your medical needs met when you study abroad at The American University of Paris. One-semester and one-year visiting students will be registered with a private health insurance company that covers all basic medical costs as well as some alternative medicine.
Coverage includes eye glasses, contact lenses, preventive dental treatment, alternative medicine such as chiropractic care, house calls (SOS Médecins), up to fifteen sessions a semester with a psychologist, and much more. You can consult the student health care handbook [pdf] for more details.
The cost of the health care plan is charged directly to your student account, and payment is due for new students when you register for classes.
