This course runs in 2016/17.
This course is delivered entirely via elearning (computer web-based learning via Coventry University's CU Online elearning network) and aims to develop the academic skills of an IHCD qualified paramedic to foundation degree level. The programme comprises of 6 modules (120 credits) at level 2 with ""advance standing"" being given for year 1 in recognition of the paramedics educational and practice based qualifications. To undertake the programme applicants must have access to broadband internet facilities and be computer literate.
