Teaching for our programmes in the first term of the 2021-22 academic year will be a blend of online and campus-based activity. Induction for new students follows the same pattern and consists of three parts: the Get Started at St. George’s 2021 online induction module, live online events and on-site induction.

Welcome to new students from Jane Saffell

Jane Saffell, the Deputy Principal (Education) welcomes you to St George's, University of London and sets out what you can expect from our teaching staff and facilities this year, including changes in place on campus due to Covid-19.

 

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:

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 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.

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.
