St. George’s University Pre-Medicine Foundation Program


St. George’s University (SGU), founded in 1976 with the goal of drawing the best talent and practices from around the world, St. George’s University has become a leading center for academic excellence worldwide. With students and faculty drawn from more than 140 countries, we truly are an international institution, with a uniquely global perspective, perfectly poised to help educate students in this rapidly shrinking world.  



St. George’s University (SGU) has established a pathway for students of ARCH Education, Hong Kong, to transfer to and complete either the six-, five- or four-year Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree program at SGU’s School of Medicine. Students successfully complete their MD will be eligible to apply for residency programs in the US or for postgraduate training in England, on which they can build successful medical careers. Scholarships for successful ARCH Students. 

Program Details


Students who meet the requirements for entry to the SGU’s medical program can choose to study for their first year on the True Blue Campus in Grenada, or in the UK at Northumbria University’s campus as part of the St. George’s University School of Medicine/Northumbria University five-year MD program.





Ideal Candidates:

  • Students who are enrolled in the final two years of a senior secondary curriculum (e.g. HKDSE or IBDP) and find that it is not the most suitable for their academic interests or strengths. They would like to switch out of their current curriculum without repeating a year.
  • Students who have graduated from secondary school and may have just missed the grade or minimum requirements to pursue further studies in social sciences at their desired universities and who wish to explore an alternative route that will qualify them to re-apply.
