Overview

St George’s, University of London is the only specialist provider of medical and health sciences higher education in the UK, providing education, training and world class research. The institution itself is attached to St George’s Hospital, one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals, and was founded in 1733.

As well as a standard medical degree, St George’s offers a number of related subjects, such as Biomedical Science, Midwifery and Paramedic Science. St George’s boasts impressive employment statistics, with 96% of students across all subjects going on to employment or further study six months after graduating, with the proportion increasing to 100% for medical graduates.

An Advanced Patient Simulator allows students to practice their medical skills on real-life situations, working with computer-controlled mannequins that simulate a wide range of health problems. State-of-the-art labs also help testing a student’s ability to a wide range of medical tasks.
