Domestic students

Please be advised that the University Health and Counselling service is making a small increase to some health services fees as of 2021. Counselling is still free for domestic students, and funded through private health insurance for international students

It has been over 5 years since UHCS had a price increase and we do aim to continue providing a very low costs service so we have made the increase as minimal as possible.
