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 research 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 the UK's largest teaching 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 voted London's best student experience for two years in a row in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey.

Research and education at St George’s are focused within four institutes, Medical and Biomedical Education, Molecular and Clinical Sciences, Infection and Immunity and Population Health. We aim to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease in areas including infection and immunity, heart disease and stroke, and cell signaling.

We are also focused on enhancing understanding of public health and epidemiology, clinical genetics, and social care sciences.
