Whenever you receive income from a Dutch source and therefore pay social premiums, you are obligated to have a Dutch basic health insurance. The TU Delft offers you a range of basic and additional insurances with a high discount and excellent conditions through insurance advisor International Insurances. Please be advised by International Insurances, because it is not allowed to change your insurance for a whole year.


Are you coming to the Netherlands before the starting date of your working contract? Then we advise you to get a travel insurance. Scroll further down for more information. Also if you are accompanied by family members or when they join you later.
