What will I learn?

Every minute counts in emergency healthcare. You need a cool head and the ability to work under pressure; it’s challenging, rewarding and fast-paced. This degree course provides the training you need to be eligible to register as a paramedic when you graduate.Our exciting paramedic science degree course will teach you the skills you need to work as a paramedic.

Then you'll apply both theory and practice on your clinical placements with local ambulance trusts. You'll be placed with either East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust or London Ambulance Service NHS Trust. As well as your ambulance placement you'll also experience other types of placement including primary care and acute care.You'll get expert guidance from supportive tutors, including practising professionals.
