Paramedic Science BSc Welcome Pack

Welcome to Paramedic Science BSc (Hons) 2022.

The Paramedic course will provide with a wide range of academic, practical experiences and learning opportunities to equip you with the right skills, knowledge and competencies to become a registered Paramedic with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

During the course theory content is delivered as a whole cohort of 25 in a classroom type environment. Learning is not just by a ‘traditional lecture’ type environment, but by group work, participation, self-study, group study and pre and post learning opportunities.

Practical sessions are delivered at a ratio of 4 students to 1 tutor. This means that there is plenty of time and opportunity for every student to put into practice their theoretical knowledge in a safe, scenario-based environment, with direct and relevant immediate feedback from a tutor, before going into practice to use these new skills and techniques on real patients.

During placement you will be supported by a Practice Educator (PE) who will always be on hand to help and support you. As experienced clinicians and PE’s they will be able to give you time and support when dealing with real life patients but will always be able to ‘step in’ and help if needed. This means that you can feel confident and reassured that the patient will always receive the best possible care.

Equipment

There is no need to buy or have any equipment prior to starting the course. The only piece of equipment you will need by mid-November is a stethoscope. We will advise you which ones to buy once you have started, as they can be very expensive, and we don’t anyone to waste any money.
