Taking Care of Yourself

Your Health

Taking care of your health is imperative to enjoying and succeeding in your studies. If you’re unwell you can get an appointment with a doctor or nurse at your university’s health centre. For out-of-hours health advice, call the NHS Direct helpline on 0845 46 47 or visit www.studenthealth.co.uk – it's a helpful online resource but always get advice in person from a medical professional if you're worried about anything.

Your Insurance

Some of our accommodation comes with contents insurance included. However, if you need to buy your own, Endsleigh, in association with UKCISA, has designed an insurance policy specifically for students. Visit www.endsleigh.co.uk to find out more.
