Whether you are an existing healthcare professional, returning to education after a break or joining us after graduating from an undergraduate degree, we want to ensure your experience is positive from the outset. At St George’s, you’ll be welcomed by a multicultural student and staff body of different ages, ethnicities, nationalities and backgrounds, all with one thing in common – an interest in healthcare, science and medicine.
Students frequently tell us they greatly appreciate the diversity of our student and staff body, as well as the patients who access healthcare services in the borough of Tooting. We attract a substantial number – over two-thirds – of ‘mature’ students, aged 21 or over when they start; many have family and caring responsibilities.
We offer a full range of academic support and student services across all institutes, departments and faculties, some of which are listed below. We take pride in offering a transformative educational experience underpinned by cooperation and collaboration between staff and students.
If you require reasonable adjustments or disability services you can find information on our disability information for students pages. For any further information please contact the disability adviser.
On arrival, you will be allocated a personal tutor – someone with whom you can have regular contact, who you can ask questions and discuss problems with, both academic and personal. The main purpose of a personal tutor is to support your progress on the course, pick up and help you resolve any problems, whether academic or welfare related. Even if they do not have the answer, they will point you in the right direction towards the best people to deal with specific problems.
Student Life Centre
Our Student Centre team can help you with every aspect of student life: finances, accommodation, exams and assessment, academic procedures, admissions, international queries, disability and wellbeing, even finding your way around – whatever it takes to make you feel at home. Each course has a designated contact within the student centre to link to and your personal tutor can signpost you to relevant support, including a confidential counselling service, should you need it.
Our careers service works to support both current students and graduates to find and maintain the career of their dreams. They work with careers tutors from each course area to ensure that careers activities specific to your course and future profession come to you. Our careers service is offered through in person or online appointments, and they can provide CV and application advice. A series of careers education workshops specifically tailored to postgraduate students is organised every year.
International student support
Our International Students Support service is part of the Student Life Centre and provides guidance and information on visas, settlement schemes, enrolment and more. If you are an international student, please do get in touch with them as soon as you accept your offer to study the course via email@example.com.
