Personal injury insurance for all students
University students in Sweden are covered by an accident insurance from Kammarkollegiet, that applies if you have an accident and suffer a bodily injury.
It is valid in Sweden and includes accidents that occur during school hours and while traveling directly between your residence and the University. For example, the insurance can cover medical treatment costs and compensate you for lost of earnings if you are unable to work because of the injury. However, the insurance does not cover property damage.

To report an injury you need to complete a claim form, which you can download on Kammarkollegiets' web. The claim form must be signed by you and the coordinator at your department.
