Requirements to become a paramedic (is foundation degree enough)? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently in year 13 and because of many reasons I am taking a gap year before applying to university. During this gap year I do plan on getting a lot of work experience though. I looked at the Prospects website for Paramedic career and it's not clear what the degree requiments are to be one, so my question is: do you know if a bachelor degree in paramedical science is a must, or will a foundation degree in it do, also which is more common amongst working paramedics, do you know anyone? I'm asking as I'd prefer to take the foundation degree route as it's 2 year and this will make up for my gap year, thus adding to 3 years. Thanks so much in advance!
