A student perspective

“The day paramedics saved my nan’s life is the day my life changed too. As soon as they walked in, I was struck by how calm and professional they were. The way they made us feel, and the care they gave my nan, made such an impact on me. It just hit me in that moment that being a paramedic was what I wanted to do.

“People often think of paramedics as just first aiders, but they’ve got no idea how much depth we go into on this course. The first time I attended a cardiac arrest, and we saved the person’s life, was the most incredible moment. If I could bottle that feeling I’d share it with the world!”

“I am a first year Nurse Paramedic student, a part of the second ever cohort for this degree. Moving so far for university was definitely a big decision to make however since settling in I have been able to continue all the things I enjoy along side my studies. I have settled in so quickly whilst living on campus and would be happy to help anyone with their concerns or questions (or everything in between) about uni!”
