First and second year Health & Social Care students were invited to meet course graduates last night to find out what they are doing now and what they found most valuable during their time at the University of Lincoln. It was fascinating to see that graduates had gone on to pursue a range of different careers from counselling to working in the police force.
Students were invited to ask questions after the presentations and were encouraged to network over drinks after the event.
It was an inspiring and interesting evening and it was great to see so much passion from former and current Health and Social Care students.
Following on from last month’s topping out ceremony the new £19 million Sarah Swift Building has seen more rapid progress. Through all weathers, the construction company has forged ahead with the project which will provide a new state-of-the-art home for the schools of Psychology and Health & Social Care, each of them being brought together under one roof for the first time.
There is still lots to be done, but so far the progress made has been remarkable, and we are all looking forward to its completion next year. The roof is in place, external walls are going on, glass is being delivered, and the internal structure is beginning to take shape. The building is beginning to look more whole, but if you can’t wait until next year to see it completed you can get a feel for what the finished building will look like in the short animated video below.
The new building is named after Dame Sarah Swift GBE RRC, nurse and founder of the College of Nursing (now the Royal College of Nursing), born in Kirton Skeldyke in south Lincolnshire. It will be located next to the David Chiddick building – the current home of the College Executive Office, School of Law, and Lincoln International Business School – and will be accessible via Brayford Wharf E, as well as connecting to St Marks Street via Brayford Way and the High Street.
