What is it like being part of the cheerleading society? 

Being captains of the cheerleading squad means we get involved in the sport and social side of university.

Joining a sports team is a great way to get to know other people outside your course and year group especially when all the sports teams come together on Wednesday nights in the bar for circles.

What is the highlight of being a student in London?

The highlight of living in London has to be the food. The mix of cultures brings so many new cuisines to try and there are always new restaurants and food stalls popping up!

If you had to sum up studying at St George’s in three words, what would they be and why?

In three words, I’d describe St George’s as 'one big family'. We are a close-knit community where everyone knows each other and you’re never far from a friend!

How does our focus on the health and medical sciences impact your studies, studying only with other health focused students?

It’s a real community and family feel because we all have so much in common.

Everyone knows the stress and difficulties of placement and there is always someone who shares your experiences, even if they are not from the same course.

How does the student parent-system work? How has it affected your study?

At the beginning of the year every fresher gets assigned a parent from the year above in their respective course. The family then comes together so the new children can meet their extended family.

From then on the family and your parents are a support system both academically and socially.

Does it affect your student life to be in a functioning hospital?

Studying in a hospital helps keep you focussed on the end goal. It is easy to get caught up in lectures and revising, but when you walk through the corridors you remember what it’s all for.
