Health Insurance and Counseling

In Germany, students are required to have comprehensive health insurance for the entire period of their studies / duration of residency. Students may choose the health coverage offered through the Heidelberg Campus, or provide appropriate coverage of their own.

Please contact us if you have any questions on health insurance.

Counseling

All changes, whether positive or negative, can be stressful, because change brings the unknown and unfamiliar with it. Certainly, coming to a new culture involves many changes. Cultural differences may become increasingly challenging when there is a language barrier. It is also normal to experience stages of loss when adjusting to distance from family and friends.
Signs of adaptation to cultural environment may include:
• Feeling homesick most or all of the time
• Feeling sad or anxious much of the time
• Having difficulty concentrating
• Change in appetite and sleeping habits
• Experiencing academic difficulties

Don’t hesitate to contact the Schiller staff. We can direct you to Professionals who can assist with your every need.

Or contact our counselor Dr. Glenn Koppel. He also holds office hours on campus. Ask the staff for time and date.
