Student nurse training centre opens in Reading

  • Comment

A new education facility for nursing and midwifery students at the University of West London opened for business last week.

The centre in Reading, Berkshire, features seminar rooms, study areas and internet access, serving about 1,600 students in total – 800 pre-registration and 800 post registration.

Students will also be able to access library, learning support and other university services from the building.

“It is very important that our Berkshire students are able to have a place of study and learning. It will make a difference to their student life,” said Gina Holley, senior lecturer in public health primary care.

This is the first time nursing and midwifery students will have a dedicated education centre. Previously they shared facilities with students on other courses at sites in Reading and Slough, which have now closed.

Andrew MacCallum, Pro vice-chancellor, dean of the college of nursing and midwifery, said: “The new facility strengthens our partnership with the NHS in Berkshire and it matches the needs of our students for study and entry into the workplace in Berkshire.”
