Health, Safety & Welfare


European Students (European Economic Area - EEA)

Students travelling to the UK from an EEA member state are entitled to free healthcare (emergency and non-emergency) if they have and present an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) when they attend a hospital, GP or other NHS health service. Te register for an EHIC please click here.

Non European Students

Students travelling to the UK from outside the EEA are entitled to free emergency healthcare using the NHS, where in the opinion of the doctor the treatment is immediately necessary.

All students are advised that some procedures (eye tests, non-emergency dental, glasses and repeat prescriptions) will be eligible for free NHS treatment, therefore they may wish to buy priate medical insurance for the duration of the study period. Students that would like emergency repatriation to their home country should also buy this insurance before travelling to the UK.
