Choosing to study abroad comes with many bureaucratic challenges. Expatrio assists students with opening a blocked and current bank account as well as gaining Travel and Health Insurance. This can be stressful but thanks to this partnership, BSBI students are able to gain free pre-enrolment advice whilst still in their home country. Additionally, they have access to a range of affordable packages that assist students with the administrative aspects of studying abroad including mandatory Health Insurance with public provider "Techniker Krankenkasse”. Expatrio is adding a free insurance package (worth €117) covering private liability and your valuable items like mobile phone, laptop and luggage. Also, if you still need a current bank account, this can be done simultaneously in the same application. Last but not least, Expatrio's partner DeGiS - Deutsche Gesellschaft internationaler Studierender (Germany's largest association for international students) is offering one of you a scholarship for mentoring including financial support of €1.200 in total.

About Expatrio

Expatrio is one of the first companies to provide relocation services in a fully digital manner. Their services are recognised and approved by the German Federal Foreign Office.

The company’s vision is to ensure that those who use its services are able to relocate in a seamless manner. As a result, students can order any of the products (Blocked Account, Value Package, Health Insurance, Travel Insurance, Health Insurance Plus package) by opening the Expatrio website here, choosing the product and completing a questionnaire which will help adapt the services to the needs of the student. Students will then need to fill in an application form.

The Expatrio packages have been created especially for foreign students at German universities and universities of applied sciences. You can order your German Blocked Account and Public Health Insurance which are both necessary for your visa application. You can also get many valuable services for free! The process is seamless, easy and most importantly, time and cost efficient. Find out more here.
