UEA Medical Certificates for Students
We produce medical certificates to provide evidence in support of extenuating circumstances for deadline assessments and event assessments.
In the first instance, students must self-certify their first episode of illness in each academic year. (For 2018/19, students will be able to self-certify twice)
If you have already self-certified ONCE within the current academic year, only then, is it appropriate to request a medical certificate from the UEA Medical Centre. You must see a doctor or nurse to get this certificate, unless you have already been seen by a doctor or nurse regarding the condition concerned (see below).
Completed certificates are emailed directly to your Hub.
Request Form for Medical Certificate (after seeing a doctor or nurse)
This form is only appropriate if you have already seen a doctor or nurse at the UEA Medical Centre recently, about the condition concerned. You may still need a further appointment to discuss the certificate - we will email you if this is the case. Otherwise, the completed certificate will be emailed directly to your HUB, within 10 working days.

Absence reporting (up to 7 days)
If you wish to report an absence on medical grounds for up to 7 consecutive days where such absence does not involve attendance at a course test, assessed practice or seminar at which a student was scheduled to give a presentation, or submission of a item of assessed work, then you can self certify and do not need a medical certificate.
