If you're looking to gain the experience and skills to apply to become a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered Paramedic, our BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science course is for you. 

Half of your study will be practice based and you'll be mentored by an experienced paramedic, normally within West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust. For the other half, you'll be taught by experienced paramedic lecturers and key educators at the University. 

You'll study with other healthcare professionals (midwives, nurses, and operating department practitioners) and gain knowledge of the assessment and management of patients throughout the lifespan. You'll also understand the professional issues and research that surrounds and underpins paramedic practice.
