All international students studying at the University of Greenwich for six months or longer are entitled to receive free National Health Service (NHS) treatment.
European Economic Area (EEA) Nationals studying for less than six months are also eligible for free NHS treatment provided you completed form E128 in your home country.
All other international students studying for less than six months will have to pay for any treatment other than emergency treatment. Therefore, we highly-recommend you take out medical insurance.
