Doctors and health services
The National Health Service (NHS) provides health services in the UK and all students are entitled to treatment from the NHS, including Tier 4 visa holders who will have paid IHS fees as part of the immigration process.
We recommend that you register with a doctor as soon as possible after your arrival in Norwich. Please don’t wait until you become unwell. The University does not have a Student Health centre, however you can search for NHS surgeries to register with a doctor close to your home in Norwich.
Treatment is generally free of charge, but there are fees for dental treatment and prescription drugs. You may be entitled to help with prescription costs. If you’re joining the University from overseas, the NHS provides a useful guide to health services in the UK.
Immunisations and vaccinations
It is good practice for students to be fully immunised in accordance with Department of Health recommendations. We advise that new students check their vaccination status via their GP practice before arrival at Norwich.
Providing medical/disability information to the University
As part of the online enrolment process you’ll be asked to complete a medical/disability section. This confidential information is held within the Student Support team and disclosed only with your permission to support your needs while studying at the University.
If you’re diagnosed with a medical condition or disability during your studies we ask that you contact us to update your medical/disability status and discuss any additional support you may require. Please use Our Norwich Uni
Norwich offers a free, confidential, counselling service for all students, provided by professional counsellors external to the University. Please visit the VLE for further information about counselling
