St George's, University of London takes great pride in its distinctiveness as a health sciences university. As it is co-located with St George's Hospital in South West London, students can walk the corridors from clinical teaching room to laboratory to hospital ward or clinic. The Hospital is one of the UK's busiest, and serves a community of over one million people in the capital; a community that is nationally representative and relevant to the learning of medicine and biological sciences in their broadest sense. St George's combines self-reliance with valuable partnerships across the university and health sectors, and inspires continuing pride, commitment and loyalty in students past and present.
Why St George's? As well as sharing our campus with St George's Hospital, our close neighbours are the South West London and St George's Mental Health Trusts. Together, these NHS trusts form the hub of an extensive network of acute hospital trusts, primary care trusts and social services that is referred to as the South West London Academic Health Sciences Network. This rich blend of supportive learning environments and local clinical experience sets St George's, University of London still further apart.
