For whom is this insurance intended?
OOM Studying in the Netherlands provides an insurance to students, interns and au pairs in the Netherlands. Even when they have a health insurance in the country of origin, they often desire more coverage during their stay in the Netherlands. OOM Studying in the Netherlands is a product specially developed for this group. It offers the SOS-insurance as a basis to which coverage can be added. The insurance can therefore be adapted to the specific needs of the student.
