Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education

Our health, social work and social care courses are taught across two south-west London sites in a unique partnership between Kingston University, a modern university, and St George's, University of London, an established medical university integrated with a teaching hospital.

All courses combine essential practical experience with your university education.

Depending on your course, you could spend up to half your learning time on practice placements.

We're ranked No.1 in London and No.3 in the UK for Education.*

We're also No.1 in London for Nursing and Midwifery.*

*Guardian University League Tables 2021.


We're proud to have been awarded the ‘Educator of the Year' award at the Student Nursing Times Awards 2020 and ‘Most Innovative Teacher of The Year' at the Times Higher Education Awards 2020.

Our facilities

Our state-of-the-art practice simulation suites allow you to hone your skills by getting hands-on experience.

The facilities are purposely designed to meet the learning needs of a range of practice-orientated professionals.

We have subject-based teaching practice classrooms, a social practice suite, and skills labs purposely designed for practising lessons in real settings.

Our outdoor learning environment will enable you to simulate learning and teaching with natural materials.

“My course has prepared me with the knowledge, skills and experience I need to begin my career in teaching. It's given me a true feel of what it'll be like to be a teacher when I graduate.”
