Our independence as a specialist institution offers us the flexibility to work in partnership with many different organisations and networks.
St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
We share our campus with St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, one of the UK's largest teaching hospitals. This means our students learn in a professional healthcare environment from day one. Our partnership with St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, along with our strong links with other healthcare providers, enable up-to-the-minute clinical insight that keeps our research and teaching relevant to evolving healthcare needs. Our co-location with the Trust gives our researchers access to a diverse range of patients who participate in clinical trials and are essential to the success of many of our research activities.
University of London
St George's is one of the 18 colleges that make up the University of London. It is now the only stand-alone medical school within the federation, offering students not only the advantage of a smaller, friendly school but also the benefits of one of the largest and most diverse universities in Britain.
Additionally, as a St George's student you are able to use the enormous resources of the University of London. This will give you access to the Senate House Library, the Careers Library and the Accommodation Office, as well as full use of all the facilities provided by the University of London Union (ULU).
In 1995 St George's established a partnership with Kingston University to jointly offer courses in health and social care, and conduct practice-focused research within the shared Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education. This partnership will draw upon the expertise and facilities of two quite different institutions. Students on these courses benefit from a unique multi-faculty experience provided through Kingston combined with the health science expertise offered by St George’s.
More than 5,500 students are enrolled on the courses it offers. These include nursing, midwifery and child health, paramedic science, radiography, rehabilitation sciences and social work, as well as a range of continuing personal and professional development programmes.
INTO University Partnerships
In 2011 St George’s and INTO University Partnerships entered into a joint venture – called INTO St George’s, University of London (INTO SGUL) – that offers degree-level and pre-university courses in medicine and biomedical sciences based at St George’s, for international students.
Students on the INTO SGUL International Medicine and International Graduate Medicine courses take their clinical placements in the USA, and work towards the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) during their programme.
The University of Nicosia
In 2010, St George’s, University of London joined forces with the University of Nicosia, Cyprus’s biggest private university, to launch the first medical training programme in Cyprus. The University of Nicosia now offers a four-year graduate entry medicine degree awarded by St George’s and based on our own successful course. Clinical placements are taken in Israel and the USA. Students on the programme have come from many countries including the United States, Canada, Greece, Cyprus, other EU member states, Lebanon and Israel.
Since 2015, St George's and the University of Nicosia have also jointly awarded an MSc in Family Medicine, delivered by the University of Nicosia Medical School in Cyprus.
