Hi, I'm starting my first year at uni this september, at some point I'll be having jaw surgery and this will probably happen around january/february of 2017. I'll probably need at least 3 weeks out, shall I let the uni's know this? will this be okay?
Thanks!

You'll be able to get a note from the hospital/docs to say that you're having surgery and will need X amount of recovery time. Your deadlines will most likely be extended by the amount of recovery time, but don't quote me on that.

You'll just need to take the surgery information to your student services and they'll be able to put it on the student records system.

You might have a problem with exams as January/February is exam period, I would think the uni may ask whether you could have the surgery later, or you'll have to come back during the summer to do uncapped resits.
