College Nurses

Most Oxford University Colleges have College Nurses. Students at that College can consult freely with their College Nurse to get advice on everyday health issues, minor illnesses and simple ailments. The Colleges Nurses also provide advice on common mental health issues, such as loneliness and exam stress. They can provide medical certificates to students who miss an exam because of an unexpected illness.
