Course summary

Paramedics are highly competent healthcare professionals who work in a fast-paced environment to provide urgent and emergency care across a wide range of challenging situations. As a modern paramedic you will develop the interpersonal and communication skills needed to work as part of an inter-professional healthcare team and to provide care to a wide variety of patients within stressful situations. You’ll also build critical adaptive-thinking and decision-making skills to enable you to deliver high-quality, patient-centred care. Placements will form a large portion of your experience each academic year and this will include working alongside registered paramedic practitioners. This will consolidate your theoretical knowledge and skills and prepare you to become a registered paramedic with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) on successful completion of this course. You will have access to a variety of training facilities, including our breathing and talking manikins, frontline ambulance equipment, a training ambulance, and our SPACE facility which allows you to practise your clinical skills.
