Every student of the university at the first enrollment must face a medical test. The aim of this test is to determine whether the student has suitable health condition to continue the academic career without difficulties. If a student is found to be suffering from a severe decease, he/she is directed to special clinics in the hospital for treatments. During the academic year, the medical centre is open for treatment for students as well as staff from
8.00 am to 5.00 pm on weekdays. All drugs are free of charge. If a prescribed drug is not available in the clinic, the University will reimburse the expenses.
If a student is unable to attend lectures and/or practical classes due to an illness he/she should inform the university medical officer within a week. If a student wishes he/she can get medical assistance from a government or a private doctor. However, the University medical officer should approve the medical certificates issued by them.

submitted to the examinations branch within three days with the approval of the University medical officer.
