Facilities at the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education – Kingston University


Our nursing students are taught by the Simulated Learning and Clinical Skills team within clinical, community and practice health settings.

Our Nursing Simulated Learning and Clinical Skills Centre facilities include a simulated ward area with a medication room, clinical classrooms, one of which has an immersion suite for fully immersive simulated learning scenarios in different settings. The areas are set up with an audio-visual system so skills and simulations can be recorded for group debrief and self-assessment.

Within our facilities, students take part in award-winning innovative simulations with role players and full body manikins that provide unprecedented opportunities to acquire, develop and maintain the knowledge, skills, values and behaviours needed for safe and effective patient care.

Social work

Our skills lab is a purpose-built facility where social work students have the opportunity to learn and to practise key social work skills.

The skills lab allows you to develop your assessment and intervention skills and other skills such as mentoring, teaching and providing reflective supervision in a real-life setting. It has been designed to be a multi-functional space which can be changed according to the simulated activities required.

The skills lab is divided into several sections including:

  • a seminar/case conference room for a maximum of 20 people
  • a simulated living-room and front door to assist in developing skills relating to home visits
  • five interview rooms simulating work environments
  • a control room with two-way mirror and viewing monitors
  • all rooms have fitted cameras and microphones so that activities can be recorded


Our Kingston Hill campus offers you modern facilities and include well-equipped laboratories where you can practise within a safe environment. Our new simulation suite houses all the equipment needed to develop clinical practice skills.

This versatile space can be used for simulated home settings or a delivery suite setting. It also has a range of equipment, including a birthing pool, birthing mattresses, manikins, resuscitaires and exercise balls for you to learn with.
