InterCity Place: facilities for health professions, nursing and midwifery

Opening September 2023

A brand new space on our main city-centre campus to train and develop the next generation of nurses, midwives and allied health professionals.
A new home for the University's healthcare schools, InterCity Place will complement existing clinical facilities and create an unrivalled location where undergraduate and postgraduate students from a variety of disciplines learn together under one roof.

A first look inside InterCity Place

We gave our healthcare students a sneak peek at the spaces that will be fostering their skills in their chosen disciplines.
A tour of the construction site gave the students a chance to get acquainted with the building and consider the ways it will benefit their learning and practice.

It's amazing how all the health professions are going to be together. We work as a multidisciplinary team in practice and will when we are qualified, so having the opportunity to do that as students is ideal.

I was impressed by how spacious it is inside, how much light there is in the rooms. I feel like it is a really beneficial learning environment and a great place to learn and study in.

The simulation space will give me experience before I go on placement and will prepare me for what to expect while allowing me to develop my practical skills.
