    check the welfare pages for international students on the university web site. I think international students pay a fee to entitle them to all NHS services, but I don't know how this is collected.
    You will probably also want to take out insurance as NHS is for health costs only so it would not cover repatriation, or any other costs such as belongings.

    International students pay an extra £150 as part of the visa application process. This entitles them to access NHS services free for a year.

    This is a good guide:
