My Jobs I would like to do
To work as a paramedic, you must be registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). In order to register you'll need to complete an HCPC-approved paramedic science qualification.
There are three training routes available depending on your previous qualifications and experience:
The recommend route is to complete a university paramedic science course at BSc Honours degree level.
Alternatively, you can apply for a position within an ambulance trust as a student paramedic and study while working. The ambulance services are working with partner universities to provide BSc (Hons) degree apprenticeships.
If you are a nurse, midwife or allied health professional, you can take one of the two MSc pre-registration courses (level 7) available in England to gain registration as a paramedic.
Full details of all HCPC-approved paramedic science qualifications are available on the HCPC register of approved education and training programmes. A number of HCPC-approved programmes are also endorsed by The College of Paramedics. For details, see Endorsed Courses.
To get a place on a BSc (Hons) degree programme you'll typically need two or three A-levels, including a science, as well as five GCSEs, including English language, science and maths at Grade 4 (C) or above. For some courses, you'll need a full UK manual driving licence with C1 (or provisional C1) status.
Student paramedic apprenticeships are very competitive and each NHS ambulance service trust may have its own individual entry requirements for posts. Check for details in the job advertisement or contact the trust directly for further details. Applicants will usually need five GCSEs, including English language, science and maths at Grade 4 (C) or above, as well as a clean manual driving licence with Category C1 status.
You'll need to undertake an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check in England and Wales, Access Northern Ireland or the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme in Scotland to train as a paramedic. A fitness assessment is also a common requirement and an occupational health assessment.
From September 2020, paramedic students can receive funding support of at least £5,000 per year. There is up to £3,000 further funding available for eligible students. You don't have to pay it back and are still able to access funding for tuition and maintenance loans from the Student Loans Company. For more information, see Health Careers.
For more information on a career as a paramedic, see The College of Paramedics Become a Paramedic.
