This course runs in 2016/17.

Professional Paramedics are ready to face the unexpected challenges that come with providing emergency care in the pre hospital environment, or urgent care setting, to an ageing and diverse population. This course aims to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to become a professional, HCPC registered Paramedic.


On successful completion of this course, you will be eligible to apply for registration as a Paramedic on the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) professional register. It is a legal requirement that anyone who wishes to practice using a title protected by the Health Professions Order 2001 is on the HCPC Register. For more information please see the HCPC website. 

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • nationally-renowned paramedic staff with both clinical and research expertise;
  • a long-standing collaboration with the West Midlands Ambulance Service who provide support, placement provision and mentorship for students. A high percentage of students obtain their first job from their placement provider;
  • lectures from specialists in their field across the Paramedic, nursing and mental health spectrum, all with experience and a special interest in pre-hospital care;
  • the use of an ambulance simulator provides you with an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the environment in which you are going to work before you step foot on an operational vehicle;
  • close supervision, support and guidance while
    on placement with a service provided qualified Paramedic mentor;
  • a wide range of current books and articles related to paramedic sciences with contribution from the teaching team.



Accreditations shall be renewed in accordance with the accreditors standard review process and subject to the University maintaining the same high standards of course delivery.


The core themes for this course are: communication and professionalism; anatomy, pathophysiology and pharmacology; paramedic skills; evidence informed practice and clinical decision making. You will cover all of these over the full two-year course, with a more in-depth focus on paramedic practice in the final year.

You will also undertake compulsory practice placements where you will be working with real patients, registered Paramedics and other health care professionals.


We use a wide range of approaches to teaching and learning including lectures, seminars and problem-based learning supported by online work and practice placements. When teaching clinical skills, we use a “flipped classroom” approach and provide our students with theoretical pre-learning prior to a session. This facilitates a more comprehensive use of your time here at the University ,a proficient and productive learning experience with hands on experience in a controlled simulated environment, using high fidelity manikins.


An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: examinations 25%, coursework 22%, practical 53%.


Typically, when in university, you will spend up to 24 hours per week on campus learning the underpinning theory and practical skills that will be needed in the practice arena.

Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 16 hours of skills teaching in small groups and individual tutorial time each week

Medium group teaching: 4 hours of collaboration work with students from across the Paramedic courses each week

Large group teaching: 4 hours of lectures each week

Personal study: at least one day per week is set aside for personal learning
