Kingston University and St George’s, University of London have agreed to structural changes that mean the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, jointly managed by the two institutions, will no longer continue in its current form from 1 August 2022. As a result, there will be a change to the university structure in which programmes that are currently part of the joint Faculty are delivered.

Under proposals being developed:

  • the School of Nursing and School of Education, Midwifery and Social Work, which run the Kingston University programmes offered through the joint Faculty, will move formally to Kingston University. They will form a new Faculty with Kingston University's School of Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Chemistry

  • the Centre for Allied Health, which manages the majority of St George’s programmes in the joint Faculty, will move formally to St George's, becoming part of the Institute of Medical and Biomedical Education.

Both institutions will ensure students are kept fully updated once decisions have been made. As is presently the case, new students will be registered either with Kingston University or St George's, University of London, depending on which of the two institutions is responsible for awarding their degree.
