The cost is €120 for a full year.  On the online form enter your invoice number under ‘Student ID No.’

Students may obtain their own medical insurance cover and provide evidence with their visa application.

Erasmus Students
Erasmus exchange students should ensure that they apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before they come to GMIT.

The card allows anyone who is insured by or covered by a statutory social security scheme of the European Union countries and Switzerland to receive medical treatment in another member state for free or at a reduced cost.
