"We recommend that higher education institutions advertise the Student Health App and encourage its use."

(Higher Education Policy Institute Report 'The Invisible problem? Improving students' mental health', pages 9 and 46/47  )

Students - find relevant, reliable and reassuring health information in seconds.

The FREE Student Health App (think of it as a 'supercharged e-book') answers your health questions instantly - within the privacy and comfort of your mobile phone.

A BETTER WAY TO ACCESS HEALTH INFORMATION: Skip googling and forget frustrating, worrying and confusing online searches. Instead, find useful health and wellbeing info in one single place - even when offline.

TRUSTED HEALTH ADVICE WITHOUT THE WORRY: Our team of doctors and student health experts developed the app together with our student panel. We're also certified by NHS England as a producer of reliable health information. Assessed by NHS Digital, the Student Health App is now listed on the NHS Apps Library.

EASY ACCESS TO LOCAL INFORMATION AND SUPPORT: Find it hard to know where to get local support? Some universities provide extra value for their students through an 'own-brand' page on the app, where you can find important links all in one place (learn more). This premium service is currently available for students at:

  • University College London
  • University of Bristol
  • Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford
  • University of St Andrews
  • UWE Bristol
