Medical Insurance


Rangjung Yeshe Institute requires all local and international students to be covered by medical insurance while studying in Nepal. Please make sure to update your health insurance information in the Student Portal in the “Emergency Information” tab, so that we can help in case of a medical emergency. 

Please note that it is not currently possible for international students to purchase international health insurance or emergency evacuation insurance from any agency in Nepal itself. RYI recommends finding a provider online. A list of providers may be found at Please note that these companies are neither affiliated with, nor endorsed by, RYI. 

All students are required to complete the emergency information and the health information in the Student Portal before the start of classes.
