Croydon University Centre and the University of Roehampton have announced their partnership to deliver a new BSc in Adult Nursing course for 2021, with applications now open.

With demand for nurses in the NHS increasing and Croydon University Centre, part of Croydon College, receiving a record number of applications for their Health and Social Care courses this year, both institutions have joined forces to offer this new degree course, developed and taught by the University of Roehampton at the College’s university site in Croydon*.

The BSc in Adult Nursing degree** will allow students to learn in a brand new £1 million new dedicated nursing suite – the Clinical Simulation Centre – which replicates realistic community and in-hospital settings. Here students will safely practice clinical skills with other students, service users, role players and hi-tech patient simulators under the guidance of experienced clinical and academic staff from the University of Roehampton. As part of the degree programme, students will take part in placements at Croydon Health Services NHS Trust and other local health providers.

As part of the partnership, which comes into full effect in September next year, with applications open now, students will also be able to study University of Roehampton validated degrees at Croydon College’s university centre, including Business and Management, Criminology, Psychology and Social Justice, Early Childhood Studies, Public Health and Social Care.

In recognition of the need for a safe, local place to learn during the current Covid-19 pandemic, a new University of Roehampton Study Centre has also been opened at Croydon College, enabling Croydon College graduates who are enrolled in degrees in the main University of Roehampton campus in south-west London the chance to have the option to study remotely in an educational setting close to home.

Caireen Mitchell, CEO and Principal, Croydon College, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with University of Roehampton, which is one of the top ten universities in London. We have a long-established relationship with them with many of our students moving to the university following their studies at Croydon College, so to now work in partnership with them is a great addition to our offer. Health and Social Care is a very important subject area for us and with a 25% increase on enrolments from last year we are very pleased to be able to expand our subjects to now include BSc in Adult Nursing, enabling our students to take the next steps in their career.”

Professor Jean-Noël Ezingeard, Vice-Chancellor, University of Roehampton said: “Our strategic partnership with Croydon College will allow us to harness our respective strengths to educate the next generation of healthcare professionals. The University of Roehampton has a thriving Adult Nursing programme, with a strong emphasis on community and primary care nursing, providing a wide range of career options for our graduates. We are excited to work in partnership with Croydon College and healthcare providers, including Croydon University Hospital, to offer this innovative programme to a wider audience.”
