St George’s, University of London offers a number of scholarships for outstanding students wishing to study a course at the UK’s specialist health university. They are dedicated to transforming people’s lives in the UK and around the world.
St George’s, University of London (legally St George’s Hospital Medical School, informally St George’s or SGUL), is a University located in Tooting in South London and is a constituent college of the University of London. St George’s has its origins in 1733, and was the second institution in England to provide formal training courses for doctors (after the University of Oxford). St George’s affiliated with the University of London soon after the latter’s establishment in 1836.
St George’s is closely affiliated to St George’s Hospital and is one of the United Hospitals.
St George’s Hospital Medical School was originally established in 1733 as part of St George’s Hospital at Hyde Park Corner (now the site of The Lanesborough hotel), in central London. The medical school was relocated, together with St George’s Hospital to Tooting, South London in 1980. A joint faculty with Kingston University, the Faculty of Health and Social Care Sciences, has increased the variety of allied healthcare courses offered at St George’s, including Nursing, Physiotherapy, Paramedic Science and Radiography.
St George’s was the first institution in the United Kingdom to offer a four-year graduate entry Medicine degree based on the programme from Flinders University, with which it has an exchange programme. The first intake was in 2000 with 35 students and the course has since been emulated by many other universities. Entry to the course is highly competitive with candidates being required to sit the GAMSAT as part of the application process.
In 2008, St George’s announced that it planned to merge with Royal Holloway to form a single institution within the University of London. The merger was called off in a joint statement by the two colleges’ principals on 25 September 2009. St George’s intends to keep working with Royal Holloway in the field of health and social care along with its well-established Joint Faculty with Kingston University. St George’s, Kingston University and Royal Holloway will continue to collaborate in the field of health and social care as part of the existing SWan (South West London Academic Network) healthcare alliance.
