About this university
St George's is a medical school based in Tooting in South London and is a constituent college of the University of London. It was founded in 1733 and was the second institution in England to train doctors after the University of Oxford. It became affiliated with the University of London when it was established in 1836. It remains closely linked with St George's Hospital and is one of the United Hospitals.
Students travel from around the world to study at the university and there is plenty of help and advice on hand to make the transition an easy one. These include before arriving in the UK, practical matters such as opening a bank account or working between classes and help finding accommodation for the duration of your stay. International students receive the same priority in housing as undergraduates, regardless of their status, so their accommodation issues should be minimal. There are also families and couples accommodation options outside the halls of residence for those bringing their families with them. The Student Union of the university is responsible for organising the annual events as well as the clubs and societies associated with out of class time. These include fancy dress discos and Rag Week, an annual fund-raising event. It is also active in the National Union of Students and the British Medical Association activities. The union organises a system where each new student gets a â€˜parentâ€™ from the year above them to help with advice, tutoring if needed and even taking them around the social facilities. One of the notable societies on campus is the Henry Gray Society, the anatomical society that provides guest lecturers and holds an annual anatomical art competition. It aims to promote an understanding of the human anatomy among students, regardless of their speciality. There are also a number of sports clubs available to students including swimming, rowing, fencing, football, netball and hockey. Their rugby club is one of the oldest in the world, founded in 1863. Most teams take part in the leagues around the country for college and university sports teams.
The main campus of the college is found in Tooting, in south-west London, alongside St Georgeâ€™s Hospital. The teaching facilities include clinical skills laboratories and a patient simulator that allows students to get real life practise including medical emergencies and surgical problems. It also has an impressive library with some 42,000 books and 10,000 journals on its specialist subjects. Other on campus facilities include a sports hall, squash courts and a fitness room. The university has a single hall of residence called Horton Hall. This is a modern site that opened in September 2007 and replaced the old halls, called St Georgeâ€™s Grove. Each flat in the hall accommodates between four and eight students with a well-equipped dining and kitchen area. On site facilities include laundry, a manned reception with help on hand 24 hours a day and internet access. There are mixed and single sex options all built around a central courtyard and each block has a common room with large screen TVs for social times. There is a bus service every 20 minutes from the hall to the main entrance of the university.
