Health care for people coming to Scotland to study
I am an overseas student. Can I get health care from the NHS in Scotland?
- If you are coming to Scotland to study on a full-time course, you can get health care from the NHS from the day you arrive until one month after your course finishes.
- You may also get health care from the NHS if you are a part-time student and you are also working in Scotland.
UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) can give you more information on this.
