Subject

Paramedic science

Paramedics are highly skilled practitioners who work in challenging, exciting and dynamic environments at the frontline of the NHS, ensuring patients are provided with the best possible care outside of the hospital environment. The role requires knowledge and skills in areas such as anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, illness and disease, clinical assessment, legal and ethical issues, leadership and teamwork. This programme is for anyone seeking a career at the frontline of healthcare and is taught primarily at our Manchester City Centre location. It includes placements across Greater Manchester and the North West of England in both urgent/emergency care and wider health and social care settings to help your development as an evidence-based and research-aware paramedic. In addition, the programme requires approximately three weeks of study at the Edge Hill University campus in Ormskirk.

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.
