Help with costs of prescriptions, dental care and eye tests

If you're under 19 and in full-time education, you don't have to pay for prescriptions, dental treatment or eye tests from the NHS.

If you're 19 or over, you may be able to apply to the NHS Low Income Scheme to get full or partial help with costs.

Student loans are considered part of your income when you apply.

Getting medical and dental care if you're an international student

You should register at the Medical Centre and Dental Centre, although whether you are eligible for NHS dental treatment may depend on how long you are resident in the UK.

You may need to pay some additional costs for healthcare.
