Facilities

Students will have classes and lectures, and will also gain practical experience in learning environments such as a simulated ward with computerised patient models that assume real health issues. Wintec values diversity and inclusion, so facilities are designed to encourage interprofessional learning between health and social practice, with opportunities for interaction between staff and students.

Placements

Students spend time in work placements for credit towards their qualifications. The amount of time they spend on placement in relation to class time varies according to what qualification they're studying and the year they’re in; first year students will spend approximately a quarter of the year doing work placement compared to third year students who will spend most of their time on placement.
