I am inspired by the many opportunities to help other students. The topic “studying with children” is of special importance for me as I myself am a happy mother and at the moment the respective supporting offers are missing.

Accident- and liability-insurance
All ÖH-members automatically have an accident- and liability-insurance due to the payment the ÖH-fee. The insurance is made at “Generali Versicherungs AG”. It covers (almost) all cases (that are related to your studies). It is not a health insurance, household insurance etc.

Coverage (Examples)
Generally, all damages and accidents that are directly related to your studies are covered. Furthermore, events with a direct connection to your studies (e.g. excursions, field trips, licenses,… ) are covered. The insurance is also valid during the exchange semester and covers almost the whole world (exceptions e.g. USA, Australia, Canada).

Social Funds

Students that are in a situation of financial hardship, can apply for support from the social funds. The fund consists of budget from the Federal Students’ Union, the ministry and the ÖH IMC Krems – each pay one third.

 The situation of financial hardship can be e.g. unexpected increase in accommodation costs, costs for the studies, one-time payments for medical care etc. To be eligible for support from the social funds, the student is required to prove the social indigence and circumstances of the financial hardship, prove they are not living with their parents, do not get governmental aid for students and are successful in their studies.
