New students of Cardiff University must complete and return the health questionnaire and read the advice regarding immunisation and meningitis.
It is very important that all students, even if fit and well, register with a GP. It is important at this time to be prepared for the possibility of becoming unwell with flu and being able to access the appropriate care. Registering later will be more difficult.
If you are not registered with a GP we strongly advise you to register as soon as possible:
