The city has some impressive new train stations, shopping centres, art galleries, parks, skyscrapers and lots of sports facilities of course! London’s universities are also busy building new facilities and investing in your future.
City University London recently opened their clinical skills centre (pictured) that allows nursing and midwifery students to practice their practical skills. Students can experience working in a simulated hospital environment before they begin their hospital work placement.
Middlesex University have been investing in a new hi-tech sports hub for students, researchers and elite athletes. The Human Movement Lab uses the latest technologies such as motion analysis and ultrasound imaging to collect a wide range of data to boost an athlete’s performance.
Classrooms, Lecture Theatres and Libraries
Of course, most students will spend the majority of their time in lecture theatres and libraries. But fear not, for you too will also be able to enjoy new facilities.
