Paramedic Science, University of Greenwich

Paramedics are key members of the 21st-century NHS and have a dynamic and challenging role requiring diverse skills and expertise. These two programmes have been developed in partnership with the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust (for Avery Hill) and the South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (for Medway). They meet the requirements of the Health and Care Professions Council, the body that regulates the profession.

The programmes appeal to a variety of individuals with varied employment and academic backgrounds, ages and experiences. You should appreciate that quality and standards are crucial to the development of the paramedic profession. You should also wish to gain a qualification that is both academic and vocational.

Candidates are required to attend for interview and a literacy and numeracy test must also be passed. Criminal Records Bureau, Independent Safeguarding Agency registration and occupational health screening apply. Candidates must also have a full clean manual UK driving licence. Candidates will also be required to obtain category C1 on their driving licence by 1 September of the year of entry.

The aims of the Paramedic Science programme from the University of Greenwich are:

  • To prepare you to apply for registration with the HPC as a registered paramedic
  • To develop the personal and professional skills required to undertake the role and responsibilities of a registered paramedic
  • To explore experiences and knowledge of multi-professional teamwork. This includes collaborative working practices, and partnerships with service users and carers.
