Becoming a Paramedic

Paramedics are an essential part of the current and future NHS workforce. They have traditionally responded to 999 emergencies, but increasing demand for services has seen innovative ways of working across the emergency care system emerge, with paramedics now working in a wide range of environments.

Our BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science degree has been developed in collaboration with Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS), and offers a salaried sandwich year with YAS. You will learn the fundamentals of paramedic theory and practice in both university and ambulance service teaching facilities. You'll also experience clinical placements in the ambulance service (and other selected clinical practice areas) under the direct supervision of mentors, as well as the sandwich year in which you are employed by YAS in a frontline clinical role.

As a graduate you are eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council as a paramedic, which allows you to practice in the UK.
