Prior to starting at Queen Mary we advise that you have:
If you have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, we encourage you to have this when you are eligible to. Vaccination is the best defence against severe illness and hospitalisation. If you are unable to have your vaccine before you arrive, there will be opportunities to receive a vaccination in London; it is free to everyone in the UK, including international students.
If you have any questions please contact email@example.com.
If you were born on or after 1 September 1996 and missed having the MenACWY vaccine as a teenager, you can still have the vaccine up to your 25th birthday.
New university students, including overseas and mature students, who have not yet had the MenACWY vaccine remain eligible, as freshers (first-year students), up to their 25th birthday.
We encourage you to contact your doctor to have the MenACWY vaccine before arriving at Queen Mary. If that's not possible, you should have it as soon as you can after your arrival.
If you are moving to the UK for the first time and have had these vaccinations in your home country make sure you bring a record of this with you so it can be added to your medical notes once you’ve registered with a doctor in the UK.
You can find more information about COVID19, MMR, meningitis, how to get the vaccinations and access to healthcare on the Student Health website.
Queen Mary has a free Student Health Service available on campus. Here’s what you need to know:
Further information about accessing healthcare in UK while studying (for UK, International and EU/EEA/SWISS students) can be found on our Student Health website.
We work on campaigns and events with local health organisations, like Barts Health NHS Trust, Positive East and Step Forward. Our aim is to keep improving students’ physical and mental health. You can find out more by visiting the Student Health website or via our Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Keep an eye out for our events during Welcome Week, revision and exam periods. We’re always here to help!
