St. George's, University of London
Welcome to St George’s, University of London, the UK’s only independent medical and healthcare higher education institution. St George’s is a modern, innovative academic and clinical organisation built upon a rich history stretching back 250 years. Alumni include John Hunter, known as the father of modern surgery, and Edward Jenner, creator of the first vaccine, used to eradicate smallpox.
We share a site with St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust, one of London’s busiest hospitals. Our smaller size lends a genuine community feel – students and staff can walk the corridors of our facilities from clinical teaching room to laboratory to hospital ward or clinic. As testament to this we were awarded the Time Higher Education award for best student experience in London two years in a row. Browse our range of undergraduate and postgraduate medical and healthcare courses to see what we can offer.
Research work at St George’s is focused within six research centres located within three divisions. We aim to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease in areas including infection and immunity, heart disease and stroke, and cell signalling. We are also focused on enhancing understanding of public health and epidemiology, clinical genetics, and social care sciences.
