Teaching Facilities

The School of Biomedical Sciences is situated in the Faculty of Medical Sciences Building. We have great facilities, ranging from classrooms and computer clusters, to laboratories and a medical library.

School facilities

We have a dedicated Teaching Support Office, with a senior administrator and eight administrative staff. We also have a team of six technical staff who support our undergraduate teaching.

The School has four large teaching laboratories and an undergraduate resource room. There are eight lecture theatres in the faculty, accommodating between 100 to 450 students. All of our lecture theatres have undergone refurbishment and include state of the art audio visual equipment.

Staff from several Newcastle Biomedicine Research Institutes teach at all levels of our programmes. This ensures that our degree programmes reflect the latest developments in Biomedical Research.

Faculty facilities

There are a number of seminar rooms and classrooms in the building. These are for small group teaching, accommodating up to 40 students each.

The Walton Medical Library is located on the fifth floor of the Faculty of Medical Sciences building. It carries an extensive stock of electronic and hard copy books and journals relating to all the taught modules and the research of the Faculty.

The faculty also has five computer clusters, with between 20 and 90 PCs each, for the use of students. All clusters are open between 09.00-17.00 Monday to Friday. One cluster has 24-hour access.

There is also an undergraduate common room and cafeteria on the ground floor of the Medical School.
