    Hi,

    I'm currently studying at AS level and must apply for Paramedic Science this year. Recently though I've decided I want to live in Australia for a year to experience the different culture. I don't know whether I'd be able to get a job linked to paramedic science over there because I am only allowed to be employed by one employer for 6months.

    My question is, would this choice to have a year out affect my application if I apply for paramedic science a year later because they may think it isn't dedication to the subject?

    I am trained in first aid by red cross and have experience in that so would this counteract it?

    Thanks

    Most people don't get in on their first year applying as the course is so competitive. Prob best to apply anyway for experience but it takes 2 or 3 attempts on average to get that magic place. Most uni's have around 1000 applicants for say 30 places. Get some care work if possible and work with vulnerable adults this is what they want to see on the applications. St. John's/first aider unless its to a very high level is not enough.
