Medical Aid & Insurance
Please note that for the purposes of epidemiological safety, all students must have a document certifying their immunization status, i.e.a certificate of immunization status (Form № 156/у-93) or a vaccination certificate.
Attention! When checking in the dormitory, 1-st year students or students who register in the dormitory for the first time must provide a health certificate (an official medical statement) (official form 086/у). Alternatively, international students can submit a health certificate as per the template form which is provided in Annex №8 to HSE Internal Student Dormitory Regulations.
Dormitory residents must submit a health certificate (in a free format) to the dormitory administrator every year after the summer holidays by September 10. Your health certificate must include a general practitioner’s statement that the student has no counter-indications for staying in the dormitory, as well as a record of a valid X-Ray test. Your health certificate must be dated not earlier than one month before the submission date. International students must submit a health certificate as per the template form which is provided in Annex №8.
Russian Medical Insurance
Citizens of most countries must present a valid health insurance policy when they apply for a Russian visa. Furthermore, all foreign citizens must have a valid health insurance policy covering the entire period of their stay in Russia. We recommend that you purchase a health insurance policy in advance before you arrive in Russia. If your health insurance policy expires during the period of your study at HSE, you can buy a new health insurance policy from one of the insurance companies listed below, or contact any other insurance company. In this case, you can purchase your health insurance policy only after your arrival in Russia. Your Russian health insurance policy shall be valid for one year.
