Student Health Service

The University also operates a University Health Service (not part of the state provision) with customised provision for students. There is also a network of welfare provision. We suggest you ask for a copy of the University's Welfare leaflet at Freshers' Week. All students are required to register with a local doctor - information will be sent or made available to all students occupying University owned accommodation.

Overseas Student Welfare

The University's Student Recruitment & Admissions Service provides a welfare service to assist overseas students during their period of study here.

The International Student Advisor is able to help students with the practical aspects of living and studying in Glasgow. They also liaise with other individuals and organisations with similar aims. They are able to advise on problems associated with accommodation, police registration, banking matters, school enrolment etc.

The aim of the service is to give a sympathetic, confidential and practical service as quickly as possible.
