One of the largest courses of its kind in the UK, St George's Paramedic Science BSc degree combines workplace learning with academic study and practical skills training. It is designed to develop you into an effective clinician capable of responding to a wide range of situations, such as minor illness, long-term conditions, mental health and social care. You will spend time on placements in diverse clinical settings, such as with the London Ambulance Service (LAS) as well as various hospital departments (including accident and emergency), theatre and maternity, as well community placements such as GP surgeries and mental health units. Practical skills training takes place in our dedicated paramedic simulation centre, which features an immersion room, clinical skills lab and simulation suite including two replica ambulances. The centre enables students to learn skills, practice scenarios and be involved in simulations in a range of different environments. Approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the course provides eligibility to apply for registration on graduation. Course highlights
