Health Insurance 

Health insurance is mandatory for anyone staying in Switzerland longer than three months. Students from EU countries who are legally insured in their home country are exempted from buying Swiss health insurance if they have a European Health Insurance Card or a temporary voucher issued by their health insurance company.

Private Liability Insurance

This insurance (in German "Privathaftpflichtversicherung") covers any damage inflicted by you on other persons or their property. Although private liability insurance is not mandatory in Switzerland, we strongly recommend arranging such an insurance policy.
