Hi- can anyone help or advise me please... I’m currently studying an access to health and human sciences at Coventry University and am applying for paramedic science to hopefully start September 2021. It’s about the fitness test... do I have to take the fitness test to get onto the degree or is the fitness test done once on the degree? I am doing the virtual open day soon so will be able to ask more there as well but I’m just wondering when the fitness test is!? Thank you in advance! This is my 1st post on here! 😊😊

Hi Elliejane1990,

Its great to see you are interested in studying Paramedic Science with us next year! There is no fitness test in the interview process in order to be given an offer/place to study the course or whilst you are on the course. Whether you will need one once you graduate and apply for positions will be dependent on the ambulance service you apply for.

Hope this helps! Any more questions don't hesitate to ask

Thank you so much Amy!! Yes I think most unis (from the ones I’ve looked at) don’t require it for entry but once you’ve done it or maybe towards the end of the degree you take one!
im already at Coventry uni doing access to HE so fingers crossed when I apply in the next few months I will get a conditional offer based on my access course results! Thank you as I was worried I had to get super fit before September next year 😂😂🤣 (I’m able to lift and stuff that is required in that sense but I’m no gym bunny!!) kind regards!!

You don't have to be "super fit", you just have to have a basic level of fitness. You can find out the specific requirements if you google, but they're things like "walk up and down a step for 2 minutes wearing a weighted vest". I'm not saying you can be a couch potato, but you don't have to run marathons. You could easily do it before September next year if you had to.
