Our impressive facilities in Manchester include a mock operating theatre, simulated ambulance bay and clinical skills stations where you can engage in practical demonstrations during these events. You can also view the IT suite and library and discover everything you need to know about the student experience at St James’.
By joining our BSc (Hons) Operating Department Practice degree you will train to provide high standards of care during the anaesthetic, surgical and recovery phases of hospital patients’ treatment.
Enrolling on our BSc (Hons) Paramedic Practice degree will enable you to study to the clinical, professional and academic standards required to become a paramedic.
Paramedic Practice is available to study at St James’, with approximately three weeks of study also required at the Edge Hill University campus in Ormskirk. You can apply to study Operating Department Practice at the Edge Hill University campus or St James’. Both courses also involve placements across Greater Manchester and the North West of England. We will endeavour, where possible, to place you in a Trust near to where you live.
Please note, you can also visit the Faculty of Health and Social Care at Edge Hill University and find out more about studying any of our pre-registration or applied health and social care degrees at any of the University’s open days.
