Medical Insurance

All international students are required to be enrolled in a commercial medical insurance plan and this is currently managed by ISS International Students Services Office of Student Affairs.

You will be required to maintain comprehensive medical insurance that covers any possible injuries and illnesses while studying at DKU through one of the options below:

  • Have Chinese social insurance in your hometown,
  • Purchase DKU commercial insurance plan,
  • Waive this insurance by providing proof of another insurance plan that provides inpatient and outpatient care coverage in Mainland China.

You will be invited to fill out an online survey before arriving on campus. Several survey questions will be used to indicate your insurance choice or sign the waiver form. Please find out more information on the Campus Health Clinic website:
