Competition: Northern Ireland Graduate Entry Medical School

Magee campus in Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland
  • Comment

Ulster University is seeking a design team for a new medical school on its riverside Magee campus in Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland

The integrated design team chosen for the estimated £1.5 million contract will draw up plans for a 4,163m² medical school offering bachelor degrees in both medicine and surgery for up to 120 students every year.

The Northern Ireland Graduate Entry Medical School (NIGEMS) project will deliver a new facility at the campus (pictured) featuring seminar rooms, laboratories, skills areas, a lecture theatre, storerooms, offices and technical support areas.

According to the brief: ‘The NIGEMS will align strategically to the needs of modernisation of medical care through the improvement of standards and specialisation of medical practices, while introducing new technologies and skills to meet the healthcare needs of an increasingly ageing population.’

Ulster University was founded in 1968 and today has around 24,000 students and 6,000 staff spread across four main campuses. The 12.5ha Magee campus focuses on business, computing, nursing and Irish language, and features a mix of old and new buildings overlooking the River Foyle. It has recently added a new library, student village and arts building.

The new medical school is planned to open in September 2019 and aimed at combating a shortage of medical professionals across the country.

The deadline for applications is midday, 25 April.
