From early 2020 our healthcare students will no longer be based at Aylesbury College.
The University in partnership with Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust (BHT) have got new premises at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, home to the world renowned National Spinal Injuries Centre.
The new three storey building is expected to open for staff and students in early 2020. (The building was due to open in the Autumn of 2019, but due to an unavoidable delay, the opening has had to be postponed.)
Students will be 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 building will provide a specialist skills room, set out as a hospital ward with state-of-the-art audio visual technology. There will also be a suite of six classrooms, and a ground floor dedicated to a library, social learning and computer facilities. The building is just a short walk away from the student accommodation.

The University of Bedfordshire, Aylesbury campus is located at Aylesbury College, Oxford Road, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire HP21 8PD.
Parking for students at the Aylesbury campus, Buckinghamshire is at Friarscroft and costs £3 for a day. (September 2016).
It is then a 7 minute walk along the Emerald Way cycle route/footpath to the third floor of Aylesbury College.
Aylesbury College's website states there are limited spaces available on a first come first served basis but please note this is for a small number of college students only, or those with a disability.
The car park on-site is managed by an external company and not the College and anyone parking illegally will be issued with a parking fine of £100.
In keeping with University Policy on travel we would recommend that you car share where possible, or make use of public transport. If you are cycling to the campus there are cycle racks on site.
