The way that the staff here prepare you for the real world is to really give you hands on experience I think. And that’s one of the things that’s really different to other universities. Other unis are all about theory but here its all practical. That’s really great
Third year Paramedic Student
Very supportive. They’ve got a huge wealth of knowledge behind them. A lot of experience and they’re fantastic. When they are standing up in class and telling everyone stories about what they’ve experienced on the road it really, really heightens the course for you.
