Wrexham Campus

The School Healthcare Sciences – Wrexham Archimedes Centre

The School of Healthcare Sciences was founded at Bangor University and Archimedes Centre 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.

The Wrexham Maelor Hospital has very close links with the School of Healthcare 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.

Getting to the Wrexham campus

Wrexham is 70 miles from Bangor in N.E Wales with easy access to the North Wales coast and the beautiful scenery of Snowdonia. The city of Chester is only 13 miles away and the larger cities of Liverpool and Manchester are also within easy reach by road or rail. This puts it within easy commuting distance of large parts of North west England and the Midlands as well as North East Wales. The Wrexham campus is situated adjacent to the Maelor Hospital on the Wrexham Technology Park
