Your learning environment 

Your learning environment

Specialist, modern facilities

Our new Medical School will benefit from significant investment into modern, purpose-built facilities to develop dedicated and bespoke teaching and learning environments on both university campuses. You will have access to lecture theatres and large teaching rooms, PC and anatomy laboratories, clinical skills facilities and simulation suites.

Libraries and resources

Both universities are proud of their excellent libraries and you have full access to both libraries to support your studies, as well as using resources at local NHS providers. Both libraries have extended opening hours and house a wide range of print and electronic materials. They have spaces for single and collaborative study, computer suites and social spaces, and have staff that include dedicated subject librarians.

Learning support

Support for disabilities (including autism, mental health difficulties, long-term health conditions and specific learning difficulties eg, dyslexia, dyspraxia) will be provided by the Student Support and Wellbeing Teams at either university. The Disability Adviser, SpLD Adviser or Mental Health/Wellbeing Adviser will meet with you to discuss your requirements, and will be your named contact. The adviser will determine reasonable teaching/exam adjustments to be made for disabled learners, in line with the Equality Act 2010.

Students’ Unions

The easiest way to make friends and get involved at university is to have something in common, whether that is musical taste, art, politics or just a way of life. As a KMMS student, you can be a member of both students’ unions and access all facilities, including sports clubs, at both University campuses. If there is something different you would really like to do, the students’ unions may help you set up your own society.
