If you are a student or scholar planning on traveling to pursue your education outside your home country, health insurance is a necessity. Most student visas and learning institutions require visiting foreign students be covered by a comprehensive health insurance policy. You may also find that the coverage from your home country will not follow you while you are studying abroad.
In addition to being named one of the 20 most beautiful campuses in the country, Hanover is also one of the most comfortable places to be. Our current students describe it as a home away from home – big enough to always meet somebody new, small enough to see someone you know wherever you go.
