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
Our Specialist Skills Lab is set out as a hospital ward allowing for simulated scenarios having been designed to provide invaluable learning opportunities to observe, develop and test how healthcare professionals work together and interact with their environment and equipment.
The suite has state-of-the-art simulation mannequins, anatomical models, audio visual technology and a range of other equipment to support and enhance all aspects of clinical care and educational delivery.
On the ground floor the campus library hosts a range of academic and healthcare specific resources for students.
PCs are provided for students to use offering access to a wide range of applications and to 80,000+ ebooks available in addition to the physical resources.
Social Learning Space
Alongside the campus library the social learning space provides a great group-work and simulated scenario reflection area as well as a dedicated silent-study room with further computer facilities.
