The School of Health Sciences – Wrexham Campus
The School of Health Sciences was founded at Bangor University - in Bangor and Wrexham - during the 1990s following the integration of the NHS education services for Health Care Professions, which had previously been part of the former Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities for over thirty years. Although now fully integrated into the higher education sector rather than the health service, the School has maintained close links with North Wales NHS Trusts including the Maelor hospital and Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, both of which provide practice placements for the undergraduate nursing students during their three year studies and whose staff make up the major part of the post registration student body.
Bangor's Wrexham Campus is the only place in North East Wales where students can enrole on NHS funded Nursing, Radiography and Midwifery courses (which covers fees and a contribution towards living expenses) with placements within the BCUHB North Wales hospital region.
The Wrexham Maelor Hospital has very close links with the School of Health Sciences and is conveniently situated within walking distance to the School campus. The Maelor is the largest single site hospital in North Wales and has recently undergone an extensive multi-million pound programme of modernisation and growing academic status in conjunction with the University Of Wales College Of Medicine.
