Earlier this year, City, University of London and St George's, University of London agreed to merge to form a world class, multi-site institution.

This development marks a key milestone for both universities, bringing together each of their strengths to become one of the largest suppliers of the health workforce in the capital, as well as one of the largest higher education destinations for London students.

Subject to the necessary regulatory approvals, the merged institution will be called City St George’s, University of London and will begin operating from 1 August 2024.

As part of our work towards our combined institution, a recruitment process has begun to appoint two key leadership roles for City St George’s.
