About Paramedic Science, BSc (Hons) - at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU)

Working alongside other health professionals and emergency services, you will develop strong leadership skills and the ability to work independently, as well as being a member of a team. A good level of physical fitness is paramount as moving and handling of patients and equipment is part of the role.

Your placements will be in the most part with North West Ambulance NHS Trust (NWAS). They are the largest ambulance service outside London, providing emergency care for 7 million people across the region and responding to 952,000 calls each year.

As you progress under supervision, you will be challenged to adapt quickly as situations change. The course will help you develop the clinical skills, underpinning knowledge and interpersonal skills you need to care for people in distressing circumstances. Ultimately, you will have the confidence to work effectively and independently.

We utilise many practice areas within the Merseyside and Cheshire area, which include NWAS, accident and emergency departments, health centres, hospital operating theatres, maternity units, paediatric facilities, mental health facilities and critical care facilities. Each of these placements will add to your experience and development as a paramedic student.

We have excellent facilities within the university so that we can offer you simulated experiences to support your practice. You will benefit from multi-professional days when you will be working alongside and learning with midwifery and nursing students.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
