Paramedic Science, University of Greenwich

The BSc Hons Paramedic Science is for those individuals who are interested in caring for people across the life spectrum in both the pre-and-out-of-hospital environment. Paramedics are key members of the 21st-century NHS who deliver treatments that would only have been done by doctors 10 years ago, in the urgent and emergency care environment.

The programme offers a university-based education with a clinical work-based focus, and is designed to prepare the individual with the appropriate skills and expertise to enable them to undertake this dynamic and challenging role.

Students on the Avery Hill programme will undertake their clinical work-based practice with the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust, and on the Medway programme with the South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.

The overall aim of the programme is to prepare graduates to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a registered Paramedic.

The aims of the programme are:

  • The development of the necessary skills and knowledge required to provide appropriate care to the population within the context of national and local agenda
  • The promotion of the principles of evidence-based practice and research methods
  • The development of paramedic specific knowledge and skills, including the development of the potential for critical reflection on knowledge and experiences.
