InterCity Place will create a brand new space to train and develop the next generation of nurses, paramedics and allied health professionals.
A new home for our
School of Nursing and Midwifery and School of Health Professions, it will complement the existing clinical facilities on our main campus and create an unrivalled location where undergraduate and postgraduate students from a variety of disciplines learn together under one roof.
This means that by the time students graduate, they will not only have the knowledge and skills needed for 21st century healthcare, but also the experience of working alongside other practitioners just as they will in their future careers.

Shaping the future of healthcare
“At Plymouth, we are at the forefront of integrative education and research in health and social care. Our investment in InterCity Place is a physical embodiment of this commitment. We know that the future of healthcare is effective teamwork and bringing together our School of Nursing and Midwifery and School of Health Professions in a single high-quality shared environment will help us build the workforce of the future.
“The opportunities and facilities available will enable interprofessional learning and working. Contemporary healthcare professionals need to be patient-focused, dynamic and to think on their feet. These fantastic new facilities will enable us to introduce creative and innovative approaches to our learning and give our students the best possible immersive experience, so that when they graduate, they are ready and able to enter and lead positive change in health and social care.”

Through that plan, we are ensuring our campus is a space where world-leading research goes hand in hand with world-class teaching – somewhere for students, staff and the wider community to advance knowledge and transform lives.
InterCity Place is also a key element in the wider regeneration of Plymouth Railway Station which, when finished, will massively improve the welcome for visitors and commuters arriving in Britain’s Ocean City.
