Course summary

This course gives you everything you need to become a paramedic and accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council and endorsed by the College of Paramedics. As a paramedic you will often be the first healthcare professional at the scene of incidents requiring pre-hospital care. Working in conditions which can be challenging and rapidly changing, you will assess a patient’s condition and make potentially lifesaving decisions about treatment and hospital transfer. Graduates of this course are entitled to administer medication and perform certain surgical techniques. The recognition that patients come first in everything the NHS does, and the values of the NHS constitution respect, dignity, compassion and working together for patients are embedded in our curriculum.

Working as a paramedic, no two days are the same. You will operate in different locations and need to think on your feet to deal with the diverse challenges that you will face. Paramedics work with patients, families and communities in primary care, acute and critical care settings. Many of our graduates leave university with a firm offer of employment from their sponsoring trust and there is a wealth of opportunity to progress up the career ladder. Qualified paramedics are increasingly found at the heart of multidisciplinary NHS teams. Career paths include specialist practice, teaching, management and research.
