I am a mature student (25 years old). I take two medications for anxiety and depression. Would I be entitled to free prescriptions when I start University in September?

No uni students aren’t entitled to free prescriptions as it’s not compulsory education but you would probably be better off getting a pre paid prescription card as you save a lot of money in the long run.

You do not get free prescriptions just for being a student.

You may meet the criteria for NHS schemes for low-income individuals though.
