    Hey there! I'm Youssef from Egypt and I'll be studying in Wales for the next two years. I am a type 1 diabetic and I have been diagnosed exactly one year two months from today. I was asking, because this is vital for me, as you can guess, about the NHS insurance for foreign students? Does it cover insulin? I am on Novorapid and Lantus injections. I would seriously like to know the details. Thank you in advance.

    but how about a student? I'm not born there, you know and am just attending school there for two full years. So it would help
