St George’s is committed to providing the opportunity of higher education to all students who can benefit from it, regardless of circumstance and background.
We run a wide range of outreach activities for students from Years 5–12. These activities vary in their aims, scope and reach, but are targeted predominantly at students from under-represented groups who meet our widening participation priority criteria, such as those with little or no family history of higher education, those receiving free school meals or Pupil Premium, those who are from areas or schools with low progression rates to HE, and students who are in local authority care.
We also make sure that students from underrepresented groups who enrol on our succeed in their courses and progress successfully into employment or future study, particularly care leavers, mature students and disabled students.
We are proud to work in collaboration with a range of partners, including Kingston University with whom we run our joint Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, and St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, with whom we run our successful Healthcare Shadowing Scheme.
