Developed with the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust, BSc(Hons) Paramedic Science is accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), so you can register to work as a paramedic once youâve graduated.
Work-based training in the emergency ambulance service and acute hospital trusts is built-in, and simulation and role-play in specialist onsite facilities help to build your skills and prepare you for working in the field.
Explore the theory of paramedic practice and the subjects that underpin it, working with highly supportive academics who are all registered paramedics.
Develop the interpersonal skills, problem-solving and decision-making skills youâll need to deliver safe and effective patient care.
Spend half your time on placements in the NHS ambulance service and acute hospitals, learning from paramedics and other healthcare professionals and youâll have a named mentor to guide you through your three years as a student.
Spend time on placement with the hazardous area response team (HART) and train with student nurses and trainee fire-fighters to build your inter-professional skills.
Paramedics are in demand across the UK and there are exciting career options in both emergency and urgent care teams. After gaining experience, you could specialise further, and become a paramedic practitioner or critical care paramedic.

It's just like Skins… Seriously though, Bristol's got so much on, there's loads of street art, all the independent shops are so cool, and you can cycle everywhere. Everyone is so chilled out and lovely! The first year accommodation was also amazing, so lively and close to campus. Pro-tip = The Frenchay Farmer’s Market is great to pick up cheap fruit and veg. The uni also gave the opportunity to study a year abroad in Grenada, which was seriously the highlight of my degree. And Darth Vader went to school here!
