The Centre for Simulation in Health and Care helps students develop the practical skills needed to work in the health and care-related sciences, in a safe, contextual and realistic environment.

Spanning 3 buildings across campus, the simulation facilities in our centre are designed to represent current clinical equipment and healthcare environments. Students learn by applying their classroom knowledge in the practical settings they'll step into on placement and once they graduate.
