News Page 16th November 2015

​The University of Northampton recently welcomed a delegation from King Faisal Medical City in Saudi Arabia.

The Medical City is due to open in 2017 and will be the preferred healthcare provider in the Southern Region of the Kingdom.

In September the University is due to receive a cohort of around 10 students to study Paramedic Sciences. During the visit a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed that will pave the way for further collaboration in Nursing, Podiatry and Occupational Therapy.

Moira Ingham, Dean of the School of Health, commented: “This is an exceptional opportunity to work with a large healthcare organisation as it looks to shape the curriculum for a whole range of new professional programmes and to work with colleagues at King Faisal to positively influence the quality and standards of healthcare practice in the region.”​
