Insurance & Special needs
Hamilton College Academic Year in Spain provides health insurance in Spain for all participants as part of the program fee to ensure that all students are adequately protected.
We strongly advise that all necessary dental work be done prior to leaving the United States. When necessary, students should have an extra pair of glasses with them and a sufficient quantity of special medicines required, as well as any pertinent prescriptions. You should note that the prices of these items (e.g.: dentalwork, glasses, etc) may be higher than is generally assumed.
After students are accepted, the program issues bulletins about necessary health and insurance coverage, passports, visas, housing in Madrid, travel, etc., during the months before departure for Spain.
Note that according to international laws each student is responsible for securing his or her own passport and visa.
