Charges and Insurance

There may be a charge incurred for some students which will depend on the duration of your course (how long you will be a student in England), the country you are from and the treatment you require . If you have a question about a specific treatment, come to reception and we can call the medical practice to ask approximately how much it would cost.

To avoid these costs, we strongly suggest that you get medical insurance
