Paramedic Science BSc BSc (Hons)

University rating (4)

Great facilitates for the paramedic course. However with the uni being quite small the social aspects aren't as good as elsewhere

Great so far but wish it was on site more - I haven’t been able to move out from home because lectures have all been online Great teaching, canvas is great and so are clinical skills. Learning anatomy is a bit hard because again it’s online but it’s still super interesting

The gulf between the way the staff at St. George's describe themselves and their actual behaviour is enormous. They put on a good show when you come for your tour, they come across really caring and enthusiastic, but as soon as you're on the course that all gets dropped. If you try and talk to some of the staff when you're on the course you won't get an answer, same as with the rest of them. The impression I've gotten since day one is that the staff see students as an unpleasant chore to be avoided wherever possible. None of the lecturers will know your name unless you're one of the golden boys and girls who they show extreme favouritism to. And those boys and girls fit into a very narrow cultural bracket, the same one that the lecturers fit into funnily enough. Most of the lecturers commute in from hours away and they're incredibly snobby about Tooting. The worrying thing is that part of healthcare or teaching is meeting your patients or students where they live and being understanding about their circumstances and culture, and these lecturers don't do that. They mock the accent, they make all kinds of snidey remarks, it's really unpleasant. Tooting is not a bad place at all, the people are nice enough and you're not actually in danger lol. Bottom line is that St. George's is fine if you never have any issues, if you do then you're on your own. They do not listen to feedback and nothing ever changes.

Watching the helicopter land during so many lectures. Worst actually just not being able to make a programme run on a computer in the library

St. George's University in great in terms of teaching. All of the lecturers make every lesson interesting and they help out whenever you are stuck. They have been especially helpful during Covid. The location isn't great though, as it does not give the feel of an actual university. The university is part of the hospital and there is no actual campus.

it’s very difficult to rate 5/5 societies love the societies I have Learnt so much from them and has so much fun being in them. They have many unique societies like fencing, basketball, pole, houmous it’s great couldnt be greater 3/5 cohort as with any degree it’s filled with half egoistic people and half amazing people I’m glad I met 2/5 admin I’m sorry really mostly let’s me down most people who have been here for 7/8 years just say it’s the “georges way” and the main excuse from admin is it’s a small uni but there’s many small unis like aston and they have an amazing admin team. I can’t say it’s all bad but communication wise it’s definitely like beating around the bush half the time for answers to things like exams the future plans etc and when we get answers they’re pretty vague and confusing 4/5 lectures most of these guys are amazing 20% of lectures are irritating in some way or another: insanely long (1:30) too fast and poorly explained, just plain slide reading or poor organisation of slides and material for example having said one function of a drug on one slide and coming back to it ten mins later after covering other drugs on other slides. 4/5 facilities got everything you need in london just sometimes expensive to get to 3/5 location uni location is okay : many things to do if you have money to travel I’m struggling so I do not lol but if you do you can do anything. Tooting itself is not the best area it’s very busy and people just seem to be always in a rush. Just kinda bogs you down really especially in pandemic when you can’t go anywhere and it’s the only reaction you get.

My overall experience has been good as I have found the university has adapted well to COVID restrictions. However we have had a lack of lab time, which is an essential aspect of our degree.

Best: it’s location makes it easy to live at home for many people and the fact that it’s attached to a hospital - as a specialist healthcare uni this is vital Worst: that the organisation (especially admin teams) can be horrendous at times. And the quality of lectures is not as good as other unis (it has a TEF bronze while most other unis have a silver at least, so it needs to improve there) But SGUL creates great medics and has a reputation for that, which is why I chose to apply for it (that, and the hospital attached!)

Sometimes they’re not very organised but they care about students views and try to do what they can but this year has been hard anyway because of COVID so we haven’t been in anywhere near as much as we normally should and I feel like this has had a negative effect on our learning that hasn’t necessarily been given a suitable alternative but I think that’s just because of the current situation. Otherwise the atmosphere is really lovely and like a family
