It is important to have health insurance while staying in Sweden.
Whether or not you are covered by the Swedish health and social insurances depends on a variety of factors. Thus, before leaving for Sweden, you should contact the social insurance agency in your home country to let them know that you will be staying/working in Sweden. They will then inform you of the applicable regulation.
In addition to this, there are benefits to working at Jönköping University. For example fitness activities subsidy, healthcare compensation and medication subsidy. You can find the complete list of benefits here. Other valuable information can be found on Jönköping Municipality’s website.
