It’s important to look after your health when moving away from home for the first time. Feeling well cared for and healthy will enrich your university experience and make your studies much more enjoyable.

This guide includes registering with a new GP, Dentist Surgery and finding the local sexual health service.

We would recommend that you register with a GP and dentist as soon as possible as it will make things easier in the long run. Sorting out your personal life admin early on means you can jump into your first year of university without having to worry about the practical things.
