I applied for an access to HE Paramedic studies course and I was wondering if anyone had done it before, if you have what things did were on the syllabus and how manageable was the work load?
Thanks in advance😊
I think all access courses vary even if they are access to paramedic etc.
I did access to nursing (in view of becoming a paramedic) and it was 80% biology based. So get reading up on cardiac and respiratory system, genetics, biochemistry, digestive system, muscle and skeletal system, regulation and control, reproduction and infectious diseases.
We also did a psychology unit and also a sociology unit, altho I believe some courses don't do these and instead do more biology. We also had to do a health promotion unit, and I'm sure all health care access courses do this, where you look at the promotion of healthy living etc and charities that promote it.
I did the course from September and we've just finished, I found working full time it was too much, but it depends how well you cope. I reduced to 30 hours a week and was at college 2 days a week and found this manageable. Just make sure you keep on track with assignments and don't leave them to last minute because it is veryyyyyy easy to fall behind, as many did in my class!
