Teaching for our programmes in the first term of the 2020-21 academic year will be mainly online, with students coming on to campus only for essential hands-on teaching.  Induction for new students follows the same pattern and consists of three parts: the Get Started at St. George’s 2020 online induction module, live online events and an on-site induction visit.

On-site induction visits

About on-site visits

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 will be organised into small groups for activity in accordance with our social distancing and other safety guidance. This guidance is available here. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with it before joining us.

Students on Postgraduate Taught courses will be taught fully online for the first term. Students on those programmes will be invited to collect their student ID card when onsite teaching begins.

Dates for onsite visits are as follows:

  • MPAS Physician Associate: Monday 24 August
  • MBBS Medicine (graduate entry): Tuesday 25 August
  • MSc Physiotherapy: Tuesday 1 September
  • BSc Paramedic Science (including in-service students): Wednesday 2 September
  • BSc Healthcare Science: Monday 21 September
  • BSc Clinical Pharmacology: Monday 21 September
  • BSc Diagnostic Radiography: Tuesday 22 September
  • BSc Therapeutic Radiography: Tuesday 22 September
  • BSc/MSci Biomedical Science: Tuesday 22 September and Thursday 24 September*
  • BSc Physiotherapy: Wednesday 23 September
  • BSc Occupational Therapy: Wednesday 23 September
  • MBBS Medicine (five-year): Wednesday 23 September and Friday 25 September*

* Students on these programmes will only be required to attend one of these dates

Timetables for onsite induction visits are available below for courses.  Students will receive individual invitations with their group allocation. 

Timetables for other courses will be available shortly.

Getting here

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 therefore what time to arrive.

Use the Cranmer Terrace entrance to the University rather than coming through the Hospital itself.  There is 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.

For safety, 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 bring a reusable face covering and your photo ID (e.g. passport or driving licence).

It is a requirement that face coverings are worn in indoor public areas throughout the hospital site.  You will need to wear one in lobbies and public seating areas, but masks can be removed in lecture theatres and teaching areas.

Food outlets will be open at the university and in the local area, but we encourage students to bring their own food and beverages if possible.
