Health Insurance

The University of Sheffield doesn't have a mandatory health policy. We advise that you take out necessary health and travel insurance policies during your studies at Sheffield

Students coming for courses of six months or more are eligible for treatment under the National Health Service. Medical insurance is not necessary therefore.

If you are here for less than six months, you may not be entitled to free NHS treatment and should arrange medical insurance before you arrive. See our web pages for more information
