Develop your skills in healthcare with the outstanding facilities at Staffordshire University.
Our complete range of dedicated clinical facilities include simulated wards, virtual and augmented reality technology and industry-standard analytical and medical equipment that puts you in the heart of healthcare environments while you’re studying. For example, we have a full training ambulance so students can prepare for real life scenarios using the equipment they will find when they go on to placement and in to practice.
Throughout the year, we host several opportunities for students to partake in interdisciplinary simulated training experiences that are set up as large scale events on our campuses. Recently this has included a simulated terrorist attack, where students have to practice their team, communication and leadership skills in a pressurised scenario. These experiences have previously included students from our paramedic and nursing courses as well as students from policing and media courses.
