Health insurance

Students should ensure private health cover for the duration of their stay in China. It is strongly recommended that students in pursuit of a full-academic-year exchange buy a local insurance upon their arrival at ECNU, given that whereas any emergency arises in their long term of stay, it is more ideal a choice to make a local insurance claim.
