Register with a doctor
Our article How can I register with a doctor and/or dentist? gives you an overview of how to register with a GP for the first time. We strongly recommend that you find and register with a GP local to where you live while at university - both for International students arriving to the UK and for Home students moving to London from another part of the UK.
Prior to starting at King’s, we advise that you have:
- A COVID-19 Vaccine, which is the best defence against severe illness and hospitalisation from coronavirus.
- The Meningitis ACWY Vaccine, which can prevent meningitis and septicaemia.
- Two doses of the MMR vaccine, which can protect you from mumps and measles.
Managing your health at university
Looking after your health is always important, but it is especially important at university when you are balancing a wide range of demands, and you may be living independently for the first time.
