Our students and graduates are passionate about healthcare. If you choose to study with us, you can be assured that right from the start of your course we are working to capture your passion and make your CV stand out to employers.
As a specialist healthcare and medical higher education institution, we have established strong relationships with healthcare providers throughout London. These help provide our students with clinical placements in hospitals and other healthcare settings.
Our medical students work with real patients from the second week of their first year, and students on our other clinically based programmes work on placement from their second year.
Biomedical science students have access to professional networks that put them in the best position to gain work experience during their holidays, such as research and lab-based internships.
Up to date clinical practice
Our professional links also inform teaching on our courses, keeping them up to date with the needs of today’s evolving clinical practice. Many courses use problem-based learning as a way to bring learning to life, and dedicated employability sessions are incorporated into programmes from year one.
Learning in a healthcare environment, from experienced practitioners.
We share our main campus with one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK, so you will be integrated into a professional healthcare environment from day one. And most of our teaching staff also hold clinical roles in the NHS or private clinics, or have previously worked as a healthcare professional. So you will learn from academics with real on-the-job experience.
Interprofessional learning: learning from each other
Right from the start, students on all our courses learn with, from and about each other. The aim of this interprofessional learning is to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of delivering healthcare today.
Our careers service
Our careers service offers advice and support to current students and recent graduates.
We encourage our students to start thinking about their career options early, and to develop their employability skills during their time at St George's, both independently and through curriculum-based activities. Our careers service, offered through the University of London, works closely with all of our courses to make sure the best support is given to students at all levels of study. There is also individual support for students throughout their study. This support includes:
- Thinking about career options including postgraduate study
- Career decision making
- Preparing job applications, CVs and covering letters
- Job interviews and assessment centres
- Identifying your transferable skills
Access to the UK’s largest careers information library and careers support network offered by The Careers Group, University of London.
