You are entitled to free NHS prescriptions if you are aged 16-18 and in full time education- whether school, college or uni.
My friend is 18, a full time uni student in his 1st year of undergrad and has not had any problem collecting his free prescriptions from the pharmacy.

It might be easier for you to pay, then apply for a HC2 certificate along with a full refund of the antibiotic costs.
Once you have it you just show it and it is proof that you are are automatically entitled to free NHS prescriptions for as long as the certificate is unexpired.

If you are 18 and doing a full-time university course then you are entitled to free prescriptions. If you are 19+ and doing a full-time course then you have to pay.
