Your experience of the University should be fun and enjoyable. In order to provide a healthy and safe environment the University requires your assistance.
Staying mentally and physically healthy is very important, particularly at times of the year when students are under pressure from their studies.
Obviously maintaining a healthy diet, eating regularly and sensibly will help you maintain a healthy frame of mind. Taking regular exercise is also vital for your physical and mental health.
If you are moving to Wolverhampton from another area or Country, one of the first things you should do when arriving is to register with a GP and a dentist.
Choose the GP you would like to register with (see NHS England website (opens in new window)) and take your medical card with you when you visit. Explain you are a student and ask whether the doctor is willing to accept you as a National Health Service patient. A doctor can refuse to take you on if his/her list is full. If this is the case then simply ask elsewhere.
It is important to see a dentist regularly. Even if you are not having any problems it is worthwhile visiting a dentist, as prevention is often better than cure!
As a student you will be reading more than ever before and it is important that you have an eye test to ascertain any need for glasses, or change of lenses, so don’t neglect your eyesight!
You must carry your University ID card with you at all times.
You will need it to enter University premises, including the Learning Centres, computer laboratories and examination rooms. Our security staff are authorised to ask to see a student’s card at any time, so please be ready to show your card whenever asked.
The system is designed to work for the benefit and security of the whole University community.
