UCC's BSc Hons Paramedic Studies - Practitioner Entry is a level 8 programme open to practising Paramedics who wish to advance their careers. This programme is due to commence in January 2017, subject to full academic approval.
This two-year programme is aimed at building on the foundations provided by pre-registration programmes and professional experience. It is designed to develop skills and knowledge applicable to current practice in general and specialist areas.
Graduates of this programme will be in a position to compete for more specialised roles in the paramedical field. Competition for these places is high and having a level 8 BSc qualification will provide you with a strong foundation to compete and give you options to specialise further in the future.
This programme takes into account the burden of managing a job while studying by delivering teaching using a blended learning approach of e-learning and participation in workshops. The idea is to support you as you learn in a university with state-of-the-art facilities and experienced staff.
