Looking after your wellbeing
If the ongoing Brexit uncertainty is causing students any concern and affecting their wellbeing, they can find support via our
HealthyDMU Hub. The Hub will provide quick access to booking appointments, activities and hints and tips about staying well.
The International Student Support team can also advise on many of the issues related to living and studying at DMU. More information is available
here, or by emailing
email@example.com. Alternatively, book an appointment through MyGateway.
For staff at DMU, and anyone who lives with them, the Employee Assistance Programme offers support for everyday problems such as dealing with debt, coping with anxiety and how to keep fit alongside work. Visit the People and Organisational Development section on DMUconnect for more details.
Students and staff alike should check the date their passport expires. When travelling to the EU after 31 January 2020, the UK government recommends that you have six months left on your passport on the date of your arrival in an EU country.
You should also check when your passport was renewed. If you renewed a 10-year adult passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your passport's expiry date. These extra months over 10 years will not count towards the six months that must be remaining.
You can renew your passport online or by going to a Post Office with a Check and Send service. You may wish to renew your passport sooner rather than later, in to make sure you have it in time for your holiday or travel plans.
International students are also recommended to check any travel advice issued by their own country.
European Health Insurance Card and travel insurance
The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) allows any EU citizen to access state medical care when they are travelling in another EU country. UK citizens are still covered by the EHIC during the transition period.
Rest assured all students and staff who are on an official DMU trip are covered under DMU's medical travel insurance.
Please note that, while the EHIC covers pre-existing conditions, DMU's insurance does not do so for already-prescribed medication and/or routine treatment. You should therefore consider additional insurance for any pre-existing conditions.
Due to the uncertainty around Brexit, it is likely that the value of the British Pound will fluctuate. If you are concerned that the value of the Pound will weaken significantly, you can purchase some of your currency in advance, providing you are satisfied with the current rates available. Please note the value of the pound can increase and decrease due to a wider variety of factors.
Under EU rules, the cost of making calls, sending messages or using the internet on your phone in the EU is the same as in the UK. During the transition, data roaming charges will remain unchanged. However, before you travel, it's recommended that you check with your mobile phone provider about the costs of using your phone in the EU.
