Medical treatment

Access to medical treatment in the UK

Longer term students staying in Brighton are advised to register with a local GP (General Practitioner or doctor) and a dentist.

Some medicines and painkillers are available from chemists/pharmacies, but a doctor may prescribe you a course of medicine. Prescriptions for medicine cost £8.20 in the UK.

Medical insurance

All medical treatment is free to EU citizens, but medicine must be bought. Students from non-EU countries will receive free access to emergency medical treatment but usually receive a bill after the treatment is complete.

We recommend that all students take out appropriate private travel and medical insurance in their own country before traveling to the UK. Local to ISE Brighton are the following medical clinics:

Please see the school reception as you may require a confirmation letter from the school to register with a medical practice.
