Insurance for Students

In case of accident or damage students must immediately contact their supervising teacher and/or the  Secretary or Management Assistant. Students must fill in an insurance accident / occupational illness notification for any type of accident / damage. Even though the accident may not have cause serious health problems when it actually occurs, such cases may not be covered by insurance after a longer period of time has elapsed, should problems start to occur later on after the accident.

In case of an accident: 

  • Fill in the vahinkoilmoitus (= insurance accident/occupational illness notification) with your personal data and details concerning the accident
  • Attach original receipts of the costs caused by the accident and submit them to the KAMK President’s Office.

Voluntary Accident Insurance

Voluntary accident insurance covers accidents occurring during normal school hours as well as during travel to and from school. This insurance covers students also during their practical training. This insurance is also valid abroad and for all KAMK students.

Statutory Accident Insurance

When you complete your practical training, you are also covered by the KAMK statutory accident insurance. This insurance is also valid abroad and for all KAMK students. 

Liability Insurance

KAMK has a liability insurance for any damages caused by degree students. This insurance is valid worldwide but not in the United States and Canada.  

Travel Insurance Abroad

Those KAMK students who are entitled to Finnish social security (e.g. you can get Kela funding for your studies) are covered by the KAMK travel insurance during their study related trips abroad. The insurance is valid for up to six months. The travel insurance does not include luggage insurance. More information can be found on the intranet pages.
