Congratulations on being offered a place to study at UEA!
What should you do now?
- Read all the guidance within this section

- Photocopy the health questionnaire and keep a copy somewhere safe
- Send the completed health questionnaire and your immunisation history to the address provided
The university welcomes applications from disabled people as most health conditions and impairments should not prevent you from being accepted for training, if reasonable adjustments can be made. The school will provide all reasonable support to enable students with impairments and health conditions to complete their studies. It is therefore important that you declare all known medical conditions and events. Failure to declare a medical condition or event may lead to your offer being withdrawn or suspension from your course.
For further advice in relation to a disability, contact the UEA Disability Coordinator at Student Support Service (SSS) on +44(0)1603 592651 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
To discuss health and fitness to practise issues, contact Occupational Health Services on +44(01603) 592174 or email email@example.com
In order to assess your needs you are required to complete a health questionnaire. All medical and sensitive personal information you provide will be held in confidence by Occupational Health. The school will only be informed of the need to make adjustments if it is relevant to your educational needs or the safety of children or patients. You will be fully involved before any recommendations are made.
Important: You may not be allowed to start your course if Occupational Health has not received your completed health questionnaire and your school has not received your occupational health clearance. We can only process health questionnaires within 8 months of your course start date. If your start date falls outside of this time frame, please delay completion of this questionnaire until 8 months prior.
You must inform Occupational Health if there is any change in your health between completing the questionnaire and starting at UEA.
