Health clearance

You'll be asked to complete a confidential online occupational health questionnaire. This will be sent out from May 2024, you should aim to complete this immediately to avoid delays with your application. Please complete with as much detail as possible. If you do not have all of the information required, it is suggested you submit it with the information that you have to avoid delay in your clearance. You can visit your occupational health portal to update/amend as appropriate.

The university may need to carry out a full assessment of your support needs in order to ensure that it can fully meet its legal obligations to you. Very occasionally, the university may determine that it is not able to provide the support required, in which case the offer will be withdrawn. 

If you disclose a disability, the University Disability Support Services may contact you to discuss possible reasonable adjustments to support you with your studies.

As part of the health clearance, we need to make sure you're fit to study and fit to practice.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you complete the occupational health process to be cleared as fit to study. Failure to complete this means you have not complied with the requirements of your course and will not be able to start with the rest of your year group.
