Are you a student from the EEA (European Economic Area) or Switzerland?
EEA & Swiss students must have a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), obtained in your home country or online. The EHIC card allows access to state provided healthcare and will cover treatment which is necessary during your time in the UK. For additional guidance see the UKCISA website for guidance relating to comprehensive sickness insurance for EEA & Swiss students.

EEA & Swiss students can make an appointment at an NHS doctor’s surgery - see the NHS choices website for further information.

You will still need valid travel insurance - the EHIC is not an alternative to this coverage. See our Insurance page for guidance.
