Health and Well Being

Health Centre

All students at Aston University are able to access Health Care. Information on what type of Health care your are entitled to depending on the length of your course is available on the International Student Support Unit website.

If your course is for six months or more you can get free NHS treatment, including free doctor's examination and hospital treatment, from the beginning of your stay.

If your course is for less than six months you should take out medical insurance for the duration of your visit, unless you are the national of a country that has a special reciprocal health agreement with the UK. 

There is a dental surgery and an optician on campus.

Additional information can be found on their website.

We have excellent Sports and Recreation facilities at Aston University, especially for a University of our (relatively small) size. We have two sports centres on campus including 25m Swimming Pool, all-weather floodlit pitch, two large sports halls for a massive range of indoor sports, squash courts and a brand new Cybex Fitness Centre and Gym. Outdoor sports are catered for at the Aston University Recreation Centre, a 45 acre facility 5 miles from campus. Facilities are open 7 days a week.

For further information about the facilities at Aston, please visit the Sport Aston Website.

At Aston, there are also a wide range of Sports Clubs and Societies which are open to all students. A full list of clubs can be found here.
