Courses here are rigorous but we pride ourselves on the personal support we provide students, ensuring they become confident clinicians and scientists, with their feet firmly on the ground.
Available to all students, our team of advisors can help you make important career decisions. The service is a member of The Careers Group, University of London and students of St George's can access the central events organised by the group.
Studying is rewarding, but at times it can be stressful. To help you get through any difficulties that may be effecting your life, we offer a confidential counselling service available to all students.
St George's warmly welcomes and supports students and staff who are disabled or have a specific learning difficulty - in fact, we were a partner in the General Medical Council’s Gateways project, helping develop guidance to encourage people with disabilities into medicine. Our advisors are here to support any student or potential student with a disability or specific needs.
The team includes a specialist tutor to support students with dyslexia and other specific learning disabilities.
View our disclosure of pay rates for support tutors (Word doc), as required by the Disabled Students Allowances Quality Assurance Group (DSA-QAG).
Open to students and staff of all faiths (or non-faith), the St George's Chaplaincy represents the main faith communities on campus. Our Students’ Union also has a number of faith societies that provide students with an opportunity to support each other spiritually, discuss and debate faith issues and hold events.
International student support
A dedicated advisory service for international students offers everything from visa information and English language support to money advice.
St George's has a tradition of mentoring incoming students, where new students are supported by established ones and helped to settle in.
Parents and guardians
Advice to parents or guardians of students who are joining St George’s is provided through our Student Centre.
All students have access to a personal tutor to act as an academic point of contact and support. Personal tutors offer regular meetings, provide advice, support and feedback on academic and progress issues, and support students if they experience difficulties with academic or welfare matters.
The place to go for all student matters. Our team of advisers offer support with: student finance; tuition fees; exams and assessment; accommodation; disability; appeals and complaints; admissions; international advice; careers; student life and wellbeing; getting around Tooting and the local area.

Student Charter and General Regulations for Students and Programmes of Study
St George's Student Charter sets out what students can expect from the University and in turn what is expected from students. The General Regulations for Students and Programmes of Study apply to all of our courses and students.
Our Students' Union offers too many events, volunteering opportunities and sport clubs to list here! And if there's nothing that takes your interest you can even start your own society. Visit the Students' Union website for more information.
Students with children
Study and language skills
We offer a range of learning support services for students to support their study on our undergraduate and postgraduate courses. We add lecture audio recordings to our Virtual Learning Environment to give better student access. Students benefit from a Royal Literary Fund’s Writing Fellow who can help students develop writing skills. Our Essential Skills Programme offers A-Level catch up teaching in biology, chemistry, physics and numeracy. We also provide support to students for whom English is a second language.
