Our Paramedic Science Degree (pending HCPC approval) offers you the chance to train for a career in a rapidly expanding and exciting field. A paramedic is usually the first senior healthcare professional at an accident or medical emergency, rapidly assessing the patient’s condition and giving essential treatment if required, so well prepared paramedics are a valued commodity. As part of their role, they may administer life-saving drugs and use high-tech equipment, such as ventilators, defibrillators, electrocardiographs (ECG) machines, spinal and traction splints, and intravenous drips. Paramedics are required to make potentially life-saving decisions every day and there are lots of exciting job opportunities available.

The role of a paramedic can be very demanding, both physically and mentally and at times it can be very stressful; at others rewarding – knowing you are making a difference. Paramedics are usually one of a two-person ambulance crew, working with an ambulance technician or emergency care assistant, but may also work independently, for example in a rapid response vehicle.
