The Paramedic Science BSc is designed to develop you into an effective clinician capable of responding to and managing life-threatening emergency situations, from cardiac arrest to multi-system trauma. You will also learn about minor illness and injury along with chronic conditions and mental health, as managing patient calls featuring these is the bulk of a paramedic’s workload. The programme will train you in out-of-hospital care, mental health, social needs, maternity, chronic conditions, pharmacology and trauma. The course combines learning in the workplace with academic study. Half of the course is spent between the UK’s busiest ambulance trust and the other practice placements, and half is spent in the university setting, with access to our state-of-the-art simulation centre. Work-based placements across London are interspersed throughout the three years. These elements tend to be in blocks, and you will be required to match your practice educator’s working pattern, which will mean undertaking shifts, day and night, any day of the week. These help you link the theoretical knowledge with your practical experiences, so you learn how best to deliver patient care. Paramedic careers are hugely rewarding. Graduates can now work in a variety of environments, including traditional 999 ambulance services, GP practices, walk-in centres, minor injuries units, helicopter emergency services, research establishments, and remote environments such as oil-rigs. While the NHS employs the majority of paramedics, some also work in the private sector. Once enrolled on the course you can apply for student membership of the College of Paramedics, the professional body for paramedics in the UK. This can be upgraded to full membership when you graduate, and you will be eligible to be considered for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Course highlights

  • Additional placements spread in hospital wards, theatres, A&E, maternity units, cardiac care units, intensive care units and a variety of community-based settings
