Anglia Ruskin University Paramedic

Anglia Ruskin University Paramedic

Every minute counts in emergency healthcare. You need a cool head and the ability to work under pressure; it’s challenging, rewarding and fast-paced. This degree course provides the training you need to be eligible to register as a Paramedic when you graduate.

Our exciting paramedic science degree course will teach you the skills you need to work as a paramedic. You’ll get practical experience by using our modern skills laboratories, mannequins and specialist equipment, and back it up with the theory you learn in the lecture theatre. Then you’ll apply both theory and practice on your clinical placements with local ambulance trusts. You’ll be placed with either East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust or London Ambulance Service NHS Trust. As well as your ambulance placement you’ll also experience other types of placement including primary care and acute care.

You’ll get expert guidance from supportive tutors, including practising professionals. By studying and working alongside nursing and operating department practice students, you’ll learn to work as a multidisciplinary team, reflecting the real-life working environment.

After graduation and registration, you could work in a wide range of out-of-hospital care settings, including an ambulance or response car, the control room, an air ambulance (HEMS) team, or a hazardous area response team. Increasingly, paramedics are also helping to deliver acute care in hospitals and private healthcare, such as at concerts or motor-racing events.

Our paramedic science course was designed with the East of England Ambulance Trust in partnership with Health Education East of England. It’s approved by the Health & Care Professions Council, so you’ll be able to register and work as a paramedic as soon as you graduate.

We’re dedicated to the continual improvement of every aspect of healthcare and delivering the values set out in the NHS Constitution.
