Medications and Pre-existing Conditions

Students on medications or those that have pre-existing medical conditions: If you need a prescribed medication on an ongoing basis make sure that you have brought sufficient quantities with you, at least 4 weeks supply, which will be enough until you register with a local doctor in Dundee.


If you are an international student and require prescribed medication for a pre-existing medical condition, it is important that you bring a doctor's letter (in English) with you to give to the doctor in Dundee explaining your medical diagnosis / condition, and any prescribed medications you require to continue taking.

If you do not do this it may take some time to get a required prescription from the GP (General Practitioner - doctor) in Dundee and this may result in a gap in medication which may affect your ability to study.
