An exciting part of our new partnership with University of Roehampton is that the BSc Adult Nursing degree, starting from September 2021, will allow students to learn in a brand new state of the art nursing suite – The Clinical Simulation Centre – at Croydon University Centre. It has been a long-held ambition of the College to bring a Nursing Degree to Croydon, to better meet the needs of the local economy, and the community it serves.

Croydon University Centre have invested close to £1 million to install 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

Miemie Neethling-Taylor, Head of Higher Education, Croydon University Centre said, “The Clinical Simulation Centre is a great asset for our students and the wider community. We are really excited about this facility and it is becoming more of a reality each day. Students will be able to see the project develop over the next few months. We cannot wait to open the nursing suite to our first nursing students in September.”

Professor Jean-Noël Ezingeard, Vice-Chancellor, University of Roehampton, added:

“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.”
