Course Description

Paramedic Science BSc will enable you to train as a paramedic, providing immediate assistance to patients in the emergency out of hospital environment and to assess, treat and refer patients requiring urgent care.

The BSc in Paramedic Science is designed to develop you into an effective clinician with the capability of responding to, and managing, life-threatening emergency situations from cardiac arrest to multi-system trauma. You will also cover minor illness and injury as managing these types of patient calls, along with chronic conditions, are the main part of a paramedic’s work load. The programme will train you in out-of-hospital care, urgent care, mental health, social needs, maternity, chronic conditions, pharmacology and trauma.

The degree combines learning in the workplace, including with various Ambulance Trusts, with academic study. Students' time is split between academic blocks at University (including simulated practice) and clinical placement blocks at the UK’s busiest Ambulance Trust and other practice placements.

Once enrolled on the course you can apply for student membership of the College of Paramedics, the UK’s paramedic professional body. This can be upgraded to full membership following graduation. Students who successfully complete the programme will be eligible for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council.
