Subject

Paramedic science

Our degree course will teach you the skills you need to work as a Paramedic. You'll get practical experience by using our modern skills laboratories, and back it up with the theory you learn in the lecture theatre. Then you'll apply both theory and practice on your clinical placements.
You’ll follow a three-year placement schedule which will consist of 30 weeks in an ambulance trust and 10 weeks out of ambulance placements. Students based in Chelmsford will be offered a placement with either the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust or the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust. Students based in Cambridge will be offered a placement with the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust. For more details please visit www.anglia.ac.uk/FMSplacements.
When you graduate, you’ll be eligible to apply for registration as a Paramedic with the Health & Care Professions Council and work as a paramedic. You might choose to work in NHS ambulances or response cars, air ambulances or control rooms. You could also work in a range of out-of-hospital emergency care services.
Anglia Ruskin University offers taster sessions to learn more about the Paramedic profession and the Paramedic Science course. For more details please visit www.anglia.ac.uk/TasterDay.
This course is open to UK and EU applicants only, as the availability of work placements in the UK health service is limited.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject covers a group of related subjects, like audiology, speech therapy and degrees associated with language development. Speech therapy dominates and most graduates in this group go into jobs as speech therapists. About a fifth had studied audiology - there are not many audiology graduates each year in the UK, and they usually go on to jobs as — you guessed it — audiologists (mostly in hospitals but increasingly on the high street). Speech science or therapy graduates often go straight into speech therapy jobs when they graduate, although you don’t absolutely have to be a speech therapist if you take the course. There's a demand for graduates from all these courses and prospects are good.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
