Induction for new students consists of three parts: the Get Started at St. George’s 2022 online induction module, live online events and on-site induction.

On-site induction

Incoming students will be invited on to campus to collect their student ID card, have an introduction to your course and the university, and to meet with Occupational Health if needed.  Students should expect to be on campus for at least a couple of days in their first week.  Freshers activities will be happening at the same time (restrictions permitting) so you may wish to be on campus more often than that.

Start dates for onsite induction are as follows:

Student Union Freshers Events

Attending Onsite Induction

Please aim to arrive at St. George’s approximately 10-15 minutes before your first session.  You will receive an email telling you which group you are in and what time to arrive.

It's sometimes easier to come through the hospital to the university rather than walking all the way around.  There is also a pedestrian gate to the grounds on Coverton Road—please see the map.

You will be met by one of the team at the University entrance and directed to your session.

You may need to queue outside before entering the university buildings.  As the British weather can be unpredictable, please be sure you are prepared for eventualities. Please help up to implement social distancing.

You must complete online enrolment before attending, you will receive information regarding this from the Admissions team. Please make sure you bring  photo ID (e.g. passport or driving licence) with you.

Student Services Online Q&A
The team from our Student Life Centre will be hosting weekly drop in sessions online right through the induction period.  If you have any questions about money, housing, disability or anything else about preparing for your course, just pop by and ask.  Sessions start on Wednesday, August 24th and will be held from 12-1 pm every Wednesday in September. Links to each event appear in the online induction module. You’ll need your St. George’s username and password to join.

Get Started at St George’s 2022 online induction module

Much of our induction content for new students is our Get Started at St. George’s online module. The module will launch in early August. All undergraduate students, as well as students on the MPAS Physician Associate and MSc Physiotherapy programmes must complete the online module within a fixed period as a condition of enrolling on the course. .

You’ll need to use your new SGUL login to use the canvas module.  Please wait until you’ve been invited to set up your network account before registering.

  • Early starters (MPAS Physician Associate, MBBS Medicine (graduate entry), and MSc Physiotherapy) should complete the module by Septhember 19th.
  • All other undergraduate programmes should complete by October 17th.

The Get Started Module consists of:

  • Welcome
  • Student Safety and Support, including Health and Safety, Fitness to Practice, Sexual Consent and Bystander Action, Advocacy and Allyship and information on support services.
  • Learning Support, including Study Skills, Library Induction and Careers and Employability
  • Our Community, including the Student Voice, opportunities for feedback and Connections with other parts of our Community
  • Additional Information for International Students.

The main goal of induction is to make sure that you're set up for your studies and that you're starting to feel part of the university and our community. If at any point you are struggling or unsure please read our Wellbeing section or contact the Student Life Centre.
