Paramedic Science

Glasgow Caledonian University

Content

BSc Paramedic Science is the first full time undergraduate degree of its kind in Scotland. A state of the art simulation laboratory, including high fidelity mannequins and technology will give you
an authentic learning experience delivered by excellent lecturers from a variety of clinical backgrounds.

Practice based education within the Scottish Ambulance Service in addition to a range of placements within health and social care will allow you to link and enhance the theory and practical knowledge
and skills gained in teaching time. Your progress will be assessed through practical assessments, Objective Structured Clinical Exams, coursework assignments, presentations, exams, and a practice
assessment document.

This programme will enable you to apply to Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) for registration as a paramedic. Whilst the majority of paramedics find employment within an ambulance service, there are increasing opportunities for graduates to work in a range of health and social care settings.
