St George’s, University of London (Graduate Entry)
St George’s Medical School is based at St George’s Hospital, one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK. The University is uniquely specialised in healthcare sciences, with only biomedical and healthcare degrees on offer. This gives students a unique opportunity to study in a multidisciplinary clinical setting together with students across the full range of healthcare professions, building appreciation of what it means to work as part of a team. St George’s provide hands-on learning starting with practical classes in pathology labs, anatomy and dissection rooms, alongside GP and community visits. Early patient contact is a key part of the course, with clinical placements beginning in your very first year.
The graduate-entry programme is open to graduates from a wide range of science and non-science backgrounds, offering a fast-track route which condenses the first stage of the standard medical degree, so you achieve the qualification in four rather than five years. Building on the intellectual skills gained through your previous undergraduate degree, Year 1 covers the essential principles of all the curriculum themes, covering the first two years of knowledge from the conventional five-year pathway in one year.
GAMSAT score is used to shortlist applicants for interview. Therefore candidates with strong scores who also meet the minimum entrance requirements are likely to receive an invitation to interview.
- No A-levels requirements
