    There are two possibilities.

    1st: You are older than 30 years. Health insurance companies (and some other companies) do not give student benefits to persons older than this.

    2nd: You are not enrolled in any university (This seems to be your case from what I read). As soon as you are enrolled and have your student card, you would be considered a student and are then eligible for a student insurance.
