Healthcare options

You can decide to take out private medical insurance or to use the National Health Service which is the UK's state health service.

National Health Service (NHS)

If you are from Europe you will receive free medical care from the NHS. If you are from outside Europe you will receive free medical care as long as your course is longer than six months. You may need to pay a one-off surcharge to access NHS services as part of your visa application.

Visa application support


Take out travel insurance and contents insurance before you arrive. It's best to take out insurance specifically aimed at students.
