It’s incredibly exciting to be able to take over this landmark building which offers so many opportunities for training our next cadre of health professionals. We are looking forward to our first students arriving in just a few weeks’ time.

InterCity Place is a significant development for nursing and midwifery education at the University of Plymouth. Academic staff will utilise the state-of-the-art clinical skills spaces to support students to become highly skilled, confident and compassionate practitioners. In addition, the space is also geared to support high quality research and collaborations across nursing, midwifery and the health sciences. These excellent facilities underpin our approach to develop excellent nursing and midwifery professionals who meet the current and future needs of NHS and social care in the South West and beyond.
Head of School of Nursing and Midwifery
For around 40 years, we have been at the pinnacle of quality health education in the South West with nationally regarded programmes in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, paramedicine, dietetics, optometry, and social work. InterCity Place builds on that, but is also the start of a new chapter for our school with its cutting-edge skills development laboratories. It will enable us to continue embracing new opportunities and collaborations, and lead, innovate, inspire, and shape the healthcare landscape while paving the way for even greater successes.

"Students are going to love this place"
“I had such a brilliant experience at the University, and I’m really pleased to have worked on InterCity Place since the project began back in March 2020. At first, I wondered how the project might take shape, but what’s been achieved is nothing short of amazing. It really shows what you can do, through a clear vision and hard work. The results are incredible and students are going to love this place.”
