The School of Biomedical, Nutritional and Sport 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

Our Teaching Support Office provides dedicated administrative support for our students and staff.  The School has four large teaching laboratories support by our specialist technical team.

The University invested £1.308 million to redesign and refurbish teaching laboratories A and B in summer 2018.  The new design allows for use of a single large laboratory to accommodate approximately 200 students in a high quality, bright and airy space.  A descending dividing wall allows for two different practical classes to be accommodated simultaneously in the two laboratories. 

We also have specialist facilities to support Sport and Exercise Science and Nutrition, Dietetics and Food programmes.

Faculty facilities

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.  

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.
Most students will work in one of our Faculty Research Institutes during their final year research project, where they have access to world-class research laboratory facilities and can gain hands-on experience of the very latest technology.
