About Paramedic Science at Bournemouth University

If you’re looking for a worthwhile and rewarding career, then the role of Paramedic may be just what you are looking for!

At Bournemouth University, we aim to ensure that you are able to fulfil the role of a modern-day paramedic- ready for an ever-changing and evolving workforce. 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. 

Our three-year programme features an equal spilt of theory and practical elements and you will have access to simulation suites within the university- during both taught and student-managed learning sessions. In addition, there are opportunities to undertake training and exercises at external locations across the region.

Our degree is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and you’ll undertake over 2,000 hours of placement over your three years, so you’ll register as a qualified practitioner once you graduate. 

New for 2020: Paramedic Science students on courses from September 2020 may be eligible for non-repayable government funding of at least £5,000 a year. Find out more information about the funding on the website.
