Somerset Maugham attended Heidelberg University where he studied literature and philosophy. In Heidelberg he met a much older English man with whom he had a homosexual relationship. Upon returning to England he studied medicine at King's College and received a medical degree from the St. Thomas' Hospital in London England.
