In many ways, Freshers’ Flu is something of a badge of honour. Ask any former student and they’ll be only too happy to tell you why their Freshers’ Flu was worse than everyone else’s.

You're most likely to catch Freshers' Flu because you’re out having a good time! It's a virus, which means you can catch it from being around an infected person, or from touching something they've touched, such as a door handle.

However, it's rarely serious, so don't let that stop you from going out and enjoying yourself!

If you do come down with Freshers’ Flu, you can rest assured that our doctors will be there to help you shake it off as quickly as possible.

I've got Freshers' Flu! What should I do?

Try these useful tips below to manage your symptoms until the virus is out of your system.

However, if your symptoms last longer than a couple of weeks, or they're getting in the way of your studies, it's time to see a doctor!

What can I do?

Get some sleep

If you're feeling full of flu, grabbing 40 winks is always a good shout.

No junk food

Greasy takeaways can irritate your stomach and make you feel even worse.

Avoid alcohol

You heard us - alcohol is the last thing you need if you're feeling ill.

Stay hydrated

Flush out Freshers' Flu with plenty of good old H2O.

Stop smoking

You should be quitting anyway. Why not start now?
