Health and Life Sciences facilities
Investment of £12 million in Health and Life Sciences has developed our first-class teaching and learning facilities to help you develop your practical experience and theoretical knowledge beyond the classroom.
The 19th century Hawthorn Building has facilities designed to replicate current practice in health and life sciences, including contemporary analytical chemistry and formulation laboratories, audiology booths and nursing and midwifery clinical skills suites.
Purpose-built clinical skills areas allow you to apply theory to practice in a safe environment. You will receive guidance and support from staff, to ensure that your practical ability in the clinical skills suites is accurate.
QbD methodology is becoming more established in the Pharmaceutical sector and is also recognised by the regulatory authorities at a time when the industry is under pressure to deliver efficiencies in manufacturing and drug development.
The University is supporting the creation of a centre for “Continuous Pharmaceutical Development, by continuous processing, within a Quality by Design framework. The centre will offer unique hands on experience to the students in areas such as process analytical technologies, continuous improvement and life cycle management of medicines.
Our comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.
Our Learning Zones and The Greenhouse provide flexible spaces, whether you are working as a group, practising a presentation or working quietly on your own.
They feature workstations with power supplies for laptops, plus bookable syndicate rooms with plasma screens, laptops and DVD facilities. Wi-Fi is available across all campus locations.
