    a lot of people said the atmosphere around st george's is very culturally diverse and not very student life like, which doesn't sound great but in reality from a student perspective what's the place like?

    Hi! how big is each year group for medicine? do you learn alongside other healthcare workers- like nursing and physiotherapy students?
    whats the course like? is it completely PBL?
    why did you choose SGUL?
    and what do you love about it?
    thanks
    Approx 150 students. Year one and two is primarily alongside the biomeds with physios and nurses occasionally making an appearance in lectures during first year. (A fair amount in the first semester in clinical sciences)

    Ha! It's unbelievably student like don't worry. It's a lovely atmosphere everyone knows everyone and there's a family like atmosphere in my opinion

    Lots of parties lots of drinking and a lot of fun.

    I also studied at kings for a year which was the total opposite. Both had good points

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted some advice on whether I should apply to St.Georges international medicine program or not:

    I got a 695 UKCAT, have a pretty solid personal statement and EC's and good grades.

    I'm also an international student (Canadian)

    What are my chances of receiving an interview?

    Thanks

    Pretty strong I'd say, with that UKCAT you could also try other more UKCAT heavy unis

    Doesn't matter by how much! You still are that's all that matters. I was judging myself on last years average score I wanted over 700. Ended up getting 680 and cried my eyes out! Lol
