St George's, University of London

St George’s, University of London is the UK’s only university dedicated to medical and health sciences education, training and research. Our distinctiveness is based on our exclusive focus on health sciences and medicine and we strive to bring an innovative and collaborative approach to all we do.

PhD Programmes



We have a long, illustrious history of training doctors, dating back more than 250 years. Among our alumni we can count some of the founding fathers of medicine. We are well known for our innovative approach to developing education and our graduates are really ready for the rigours and rewards of a challenging and changing profession. 


Our programmes are rigorous but we pride ourselves on the personal support we provide our students, ensuring they become first-rate clinicians and scientists, with their feet firmly on the ground. We believe everyone should be able to access the benefits of biomedical discovery and that research should be an integral part of the training and education of healthcare professionals.


We provide a world-class multi-professional health sciences education that equips our graduates to meet today’s healthcare needs through relevant scientific research, clinical excellence, strong interpersonal skills and team-based working. Sharing a clinical environment with a major London teaching hospital, our innovative approach to education results in well-rounded, highly skilled clinicians, scientists, and health and social care professionals.

Our three research institutes focus on biomedical and scientific discovery, advancing the prevention and treatment of disease in the fields of population health, heart disease and infection - three of the greatest challenges to global health in the 21st century. 


Available to all students, our team of advisors can help you make important career decisions. The service is a member of The Careers Group, University of London and students of St George's can access the central events organised by the group.
