Health clearance

If you have applied for an education or health course that requires health clearance, you will need to complete a confidential health questionnaire.

Education programmes

Once you accept your offer to study an Education programme with us, you’ll receive an email about your occupational health check. In the email, you’ll find a link to the confidential online health questionnaire which you’ll need to complete.

Health programmes

If you’ve applied to study a Health programme, you’ll receive an email once you accept your offer to study with us. This email contains instructions and a link to our online health questionnaire.

  1. Complete the health questionnaire either on screen or print out and scan.
  2. Send the completed form to the relevant Occupational Health department by email.
