Study style

We developed our curriculum in partnership with key Gloucestershire healthcare organizations and service users, ensuring a classroom and experiential learning mix. You’ll build both your medical knowledge and patient care experience, preparing you to make life-saving interventions in unpredictable and pressurized situations and environments.

You’ll use ultra-realistic Lifecast body simulation manikins, helping to prepare you for both the emotional and physical challenges you’ll face in treating patients of all ages. We’re the first UK university paramedic program with a SynDaver anatomy model – allowing you to familiarize yourself with the look and feel of live human tissues and organs as you work with the most accurate and lifelike synthetic replication of human anatomy available.
