Before you travel
If you have been living in a tuberculosis high-risk area, and you will be coming to the UK for 6 months or more then you will need to provide a TB certificate with your UK visa application.
We also advise that all students are vaccinated against Meningitis C and MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) before they travel to the UK. These are rare but serious diseases that can easily spread in student populations. If you cannot have the vaccine in your home country, you should make an appointment as soon as you’re registered with a GP here.
If you are undergoing medical treatment, have a pre-existing serious health issue, or if you have a disability, we recommend that you contact the University’s Enabling Centre before you travel to find out what support they will be able to offer when you’re here. If you know you will need ongoing medical treatment whilst you’re in the UK, you should also bring a doctor’s report (translated into English) with you. If you want to bring medication from home, you should check with your airline about what you are allowed to take on board with you, and what you can bring through customs.
