Hi,

I’m 26 and I’ve decided that I would want to go to university to study to become a paramedic. I never went to college so I don’t have any A-Levels but I have GCSE’s. I’ve been looking into going to university and I understand I need to do an access course first. My local college offers an access course in nursing but would this be enough to get me onto a paramedic science course at university? Or would a different access course be better? And would an access course even be enough for me to get into university??

Any advice welcome!

It will depend on the university you are applying to, as not all uni accept Access courses. If you're not sure, it's always better to phone the uni's admission office to check.

For example, Brighton accepts nursing access courses (https://www.brighton.ac.uk/courses/s...-bsc-hons.aspx), but it's unclear for St George Uni of London (https://www.sgul.ac.uk/study/courses...entry-criteria), Anglia Ruskin (https://aru.ac.uk/study/undergraduat...y_requirements), Portsmouth (https://registryhub.port.ac.uk/entry...022.1602103158), or Suffolk Uni (https://www.uos.ac.uk/courses/ug/bsc...amedic-science).

From the look of the above, it's probably safer to do a pure science Access course, but it doesn't hurt to call to check first before switching. If you later decide to switch to nursing, the Access course can help although a pure Science course is just as good (I've classmates who got onto nursing from a pure science Access course).
