Overview

Health and science is all we do. Our campus is unique. We specialise in healthcare, science and medicine. We are also the only university embedded in a hospital, sharing a site with St George’s Hospital.

Our facilities are first-rate, offering access to state-of-the-art clinical and scientific educational resources.

For a small university, our teaching staff are big on experience. Many of them hold clinical roles in the NHS or private clinics, or have previously worked as healthcare professionals. They provide world-class learning and their experiences in the real world will hugely enrich your development.

Our students love making the most of the cultural and educational opportunities in nearby central London, enjoying quick and easy access to theatres, museums, markets, galleries, shopping and sporting venues.

Closer to home, our local neighbourhood of Tooting is a thriving, cultural melting pot and a fantastic place to live, with fresh food markets and a range of exciting places to meet, eat and enjoy great bargain shopping.

Nightlife

Tooting is a lively and affordable place to live in London, brimming with independent coffee houses, artisan pubs, and South Indian restaurants. Due to this buzz it was named  one of the world's coolest neighbourhoods by Lonely Planet in August 2017, owing its vibrancy to its multicultural population and still-visible heritage.

The area is home to several gastropubs and quirky bars including Tooting Tram and Social - a converted tram shed which is a great option for late night drinks and dancing. The Castle pub has a garden area, perfect for summer evenings, whilst The Selkirk SW17 hosts live music and quiz nights.

We are also a short walk away from Tooting Broadway Tube station which means that central London and all it has to offer is only a 20 minute journey away. There are two night buses that run all night, and the Tube is now open all night on Fridays and Saturdays.

Halls of residence

Our main accommodation hub, Horton Halls, offers real value for money, and is among the newest and most competitively priced student accommodation in London.

The halls house 486 students in self-catering single study/ bedrooms with en-suite facilities. Bedrooms are grouped into apartments with between three and eight students sharing a well-equipped kitchen and dining area.

There are laundry facilities on-site, secure storage for 200 bikes and a secure reception manned 24 hours a day.

Location

Tooting is well-connected with two tube stations, one train station and multiple bus routes.

A 20-minute journey on the northern line (underground) will take you directly to Waterloo.

There are two-night buses that run all night, and the tube is also open all night on Friday and Saturday offering easy access to London's nightlife.

Many other vibrant areas of South West London are within easy reach including Brixton, Clapham, Balham and Wimbledon.

Clubs and societies

St George's Students' Union is a great way of getting involved in wider university life and extracurricular activities. Our SU offers over 120 clubs, societies and community projects that you can get involved with at any time during your studies.

Sports clubs include Climbing Society, Ski and Snowboard Club, Yoga, Jiu-Jitsu to name a few, whilst societies cover a range of academic, cultural, religious and ‘just for fun' interests.

The SU also has a large and recently refurbished bar which hosts regular events including club nights, sports, quizzes, socials and film screenings.

Freshers' week

Our students’ union will distribute a guide to freshers' fortnight. This guide will include information on all the events and socials in the first two weeks as well as a guide to our Freshers' Fayre.

Freshers' Fayre is a great opportunity to get involved. Want to learn the guitar? What about pursuing rugby, rowing or cheerleading? You can at St George’s.

The facilities at St George’s are beyond appalling. We no longer have a gym and have to pay to use the local leisure centre. We do not get reimbursed for any sporting activities or travel and even have to buy our own kits and equipment for team sports. There is one music room with two broken pianos and a handful of other substandard instruments cig is located above the library and very close to the hospital wards, so we are unable to make music in a so called music room. The SU has recently been done up so is a lot nicer there and drinks are cheap. The course (medicine) is a lot tougher than other unis with a huge amount of content that is far too detailed. We start earlier and finish a month later than others of the same course and year at different unis.

A smaller university than most, which is great because you dont get lost in the crowds but not if you want the typical social life of university. There is less pressure academically and other students more likely to help each other out than compete with you.

BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

I am really enjoying studying Physiotherapy at St. Georges University of London. I have enjoyed the structure of 2nd year and so far 3rd year that it is a mixture between placement and academic study every 5 weeks. I enjoy getting out into practice to put my knowledge into practice. There is a nice mixture between assignments and group projects and exams throughout the 3 years of the course.

The university is very small which has good and bad points. It is good because you get to know people a little easier. The location of the university in my opinion is not that great but it is bearable; halls to university is approximately 20minutes walk. The course is quite full on so be prepared!

Course module review - Integrating Clinical Concepts, 01/07/2015

Integrating Clinical Concepts
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

The module content is good and covers a multitude of bases and enables you to reflect on practice and think about communication and the physiotherapist's role. The lectures are interesting but not very formative, they are quite aimless. The coursework is quite interesting and allows you to explore topics and areas you are particularly interested in, however, there is alot of it (if you're not used to writing lots of essays); the placements are good because it is nice to get some practical experience and hands on; the opportunity to work in an MDT. There are no exams.

Development and Disease (D&D) is a module which encompasses both depth and breadth across many aspects of medicine and research. The course is focussed on human development with experimental models of mouse, chick and zebrafish also explored. The module explores different aspects of development, with highly acclaimed internal and external researchers, from ear development to limb budding. There is also teaching of the models which have been used to experiment and carry out these findings with inclusion of the most recent and groundbreaking research in the field.
