Health Insurance and Services

Students studying at a state-recognized college or university in Germany are legally required to have health insurance. ECLA offered health insurance coverage through one of the best statutory health insurance companies, Techniker Krankenkasse (TK).

For general medical concerns, ECLA students could make appointments with a general practitioner or see her during her campus hours.

Counseling Services

ECLA offered its students the services of a professional counselor. Email appointments were recommended, but it was also possible to stop by spontaneously.

ECLA being a residential college, students have less contact with their regular support systems of their family and friends. The counselling service aimed to provide students with the opportunity to talk freely about personal difficulties to a professional with an external perspective. Personal difficulties of an emotional nature, stress problems related to life at ECLA and similar issues could all be discussed with the counsellor.

All aspects of the meeting with the counsellor were strictly confidential.
