Students using 3D radiotherapy simulation

Facilities in Health Professions

Build your confidence and hone your skills before going on your placement, using industry-standard equipment that mirrors the equipment you’ll find in the workplace.

Our Health Professions courses are based on our Glenside Campus, which offers excellent teaching facilities, including:

  • an imaging suite, where you'll explore the use of x-ray and ultrasound equipment in a controlled environment. You’ll also soon have the opportunity to try out our brand-new CT scanner, set to be installed in late 2019.
  • Virtual Environment Radiotherapy Training (VERT): a life-size 3D virtual radiotherapy treatment room, where you’ll be trained to deliver doses of radiotherapy using our Virtual Linear Accelerator (VLA)
  • Our brand-new £5 million optometry and clinical skills centre provides modern teaching and learning spaces for trainee paramedics, nurses, occupational therapy and optometry students.
  • Glenside library: our outstanding health and social care library is home to a wide variety of resources that will enhance your learning.
