Where can students go if medical assistance is needed?
All students have, in addition to public Health Insurance, a School Health Insurance covering students younger than 28 years.
The school insurance covers school accidents, TB, surgery, Neuropsychiatry, obstetrics and family misfortune. It does not cover general medicine.
Students who need school insurance benefits must contact the centre's secretary's office (Faculty/Polytechnic University) or the National Social Security Institute (INSS) (C/Churruca, 26. Telephone no.: 965 903 100)
