Aylesbury campus

About Aylesbury campus

Our new Aylesbury Campus opened in February 2020 in partnership with Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust (BHT) at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, home to the world renowned National Spinal Injuries Centre.

Healthcare students are now able to undertake the classroom element of their course at Stoke Mandeville, while at the same time getting experience of life in an integrated Trust which provides a range of specialist, acute and community services.

The new three-storey building located on the hospital site provides a specialist skills lab, set out as a hospital ward with state-of-the-art audio visual technology. There is also a suite of six classrooms, a library, social learning spaces and computer study facilities. The campus is just a short walk away from the student accommodation which you can find more information about here
