Careers support for new graduates
Graduates from St George’s have access to support from the careers service for two years after graduation.
We can support all areas of your career planning and career management, from planning your next steps to building and using your network, making applications and impressing at interview. We can support you both in person and online.
If you have recently graduated, you may be thinking about next steps, looking to build your CV and thinking about applying for your first role. As St George’s alumni, you are entitled to free continued careers support for two years following graduation.
The careers team is on hand to support all areas of your career planning and career management, from exploring your options and preferences, planning your next steps and building and using your network, to making applications and impressing at interview. They can support you both in person and online, so that the current circumstances are not a barrier to you receiving support.
Career guidance appointments
The careers team offers 30-minute career guidance appointments in person or over the phone, and will cover any questions you have about your career.
As well as online careers appointments, there is also a range of online resources available to you, such as careers guides and online interview preparation, which the careers team can share with you on request. For more information on how to book an appointment, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be in touch through our newsletters and other alumni communications to let you know if there is an opportunity for our alumni to attend careers events, such as our careers week, career fairs and career panels - either as attendees or as volunteer speakers.

Messages to our new graduates
Congratulations to all of you who have recently completed your course and become alumni of St George's.
Alumni have reached out to share well-wishes and advice as you begin your next chapter. You can read some of these messages below.
“Top effort everyone – you are all legends and should be immensely proud to be graduating after all your hard work. We are gutted you won’t be able to graduate in the usual fashion – although, donning your gowns and silly hats, and celebrating with friends and family will feel even more special when it does happen. We have no doubt you will all go and make a significant difference to your local communities, using the scientific knowledge and practical skills you have been honing during your time at SGUL. Be kind, think big and have fun”.
Matt Owen, Physiotherapy Class of 2012 and Clara Vella, MBBS Class of 2013
“Many congratulations to you all for achieving this pinnacle. I appreciate it must be difficult not being able to celebrate directly with friends via the Summer Ball and Graduation Ceremony but this will make you better doctors in these uncertain times. You will develop better in terms of empathy, compassion and insight to the various psycho-socioeconomic issues in patients as well as dealing with the medical issues so you will mature fast in these uncertain times to be our future leaders and indeed, treat me for my ailments when needed!”
Dushyant Mital, MBBS Class of 1993
“I would like to offer my heartiest congratulations to all St George’s University graduates of 2020! Graduation celebrations might be a little different this year due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, but do not forget that each and every one of you can make a difference in the healthcare field. I wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavours!”
Nipuni Welihinda, Biomedical Science Class of 2012
