Can I still sign-up for A-kasser?

Hello. I am MSc. Energy Engineering student, and I will be graduating in less than a month, and I just found out about A-kasser and the unemployment Insurance scheme. Can I still sign-up for free student-membership? Thanks in advance.

you can sign-up now, but because you will finish study within less than one month, then you will get membership as an graduate (not as a student). But your membership will be free of charge until you graduate.

Because you - when graduate - not have been member for one year, you have to wait 3 weeks before you will begin to get unemployment benefits.

Best regards,
