Why St George's


Our campus is unique. We are the only UK university to share a site with a hospital. Students at St George's are immersed in the healthcare environment from the beginning.

As a university that specialises in medicine and health sciences, all of our staff and students are driven by similar interests and are committed to making a difference. That’s why we continue to play a pivotal role in the world of healthcare.

So we might be small, but by George, we’re mighty!

Our past has shaped modern medicine and today’s healthcare. Our future is even more exciting. We hope you’ll be a part of it.
