How Does the NHS Work for International Students in the UK?

Once you pay the Immigration Health Surcharge, you will be registered to the NHS and you can benefit from national-level healthcare during your studies. Under the NHS, you do not need to pay anything for:

Consulting with your doctor or visiting a walk-in clinic.
Hospital treatment after an emergency (A&E).
Treatment for minor-injury treatment in a public clinic.
Consultation or treatment with a specialist when referred by your GP.
Contraception
The NHS, in most cases, does not cover the cost of the following:

Prescription medication.
Dental care.
Eye care, such as sight tests, glasses or contact lenses.
Wigs and fabric supports.
After arriving in the UK, you have to register with a local General Practitioner (GP) clinic, which is the first place you must head to seek medical treatment or consultation.
