If you’re looking for a worthwhile and rewarding career, you won’t find many that have more to offer than one that involves saving people’s lives. That’s why our Paramedic Science course fully prepares you to become a confident and competent healthcare professional. As well as providing emergency care for critically ill patients, you will develop advanced assessment and decision-making skills so you can decide the appropriate referral method for less seriously unwell patients.
Featuring an equal spilt of theory and practical elements, the curriculum is taught in our state-of-the-art training facilities, complete with simulation suites. You’ll also get hands-on training at locations such as fire stations, Bournemouth International Airport, the RNLI’s HQ in Poole, Streetwise, the beach, and the New Forest – all just a stone’s throw from the university.
Our degree is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the College of Paramedics. You’ll undertake 2,250 hours of placement over your three years, so you’ll register as a qualified practitioner once you graduate.
89% of final year students said staff are good at explaining things, join us on live chat now to find out more, or register to meet us at an Open Day. Or why not watch an online presentation about the Paramedic Science course.
