Will I have access to health care while I’m in the UK?
The UK is a safe place to study, and UK universities are prioritising students’ safety and wellbeing.
The UK higher education sector has gone above and beyond to ensure that international students’ physical and mental health are prioritised. If you have any questions about the services you can access at your university, you should get in touch with your university directly.
The UK’s world-renowned National Health Service (NHS) has taken care of people from around the world during this pandemic and will continue to do so. You will be able to access NHS services in addition to support from your university – the same as UK students. Chevening pays your Immigration Health Surcharge, which gives you access to the NHS.
