Flashback to November 2016, the University’s Board of Governors endorsed a recommendation to withdraw from the MMU Crewe campus following a review, and following a collective consultation process with staff trade unions, this decision has been confirmed at a meeting of the Board back in early 2017.
In December 2018, a deal was signed to transform Crewe’s MMU site into a medical health science campus which will open its doors to UK and international students in September 2019.
The site has now opened its doors! The Apollo Buckingham Health Science Campus (ABHSC) offers degrees in biomedical sciences as well as medical foundation as well as conversion courses for health workers.
The brand new medical health science campus in Crewe, opened its doors to the very first intake of students a few weeks ago, at the former MMU site. The campus is majority-owned by the University of Buckingham and Apollo and could have at least 3,000 students at the Crewe site by 2024!
