Why University of Gloucestershire?
Since 1847, students have been finding their GLO with us here in Gloucestershire. Join us and you will benefit from professional-standard facilities in the beautiful, historic surroundings of Cheltenham and Gloucester. With the University of Gloucestershire offering a wide variety of courses, you will have the best of both worlds - a large learning community with more than 100 societies and sports clubs to enjoy while also benefiting from lecturers who know and value you as an individual.
Through our innovative Your Future Plan scheme, you will be challenged and supported to become the graduate that you want to be, ready to succeed in your chosen field. Your personal tutor will help you build your network of connections and take advantage of a range of opportunities including field trips and placements, offering invaluable experience outside of the lecture theatre.
Our students never tire of finding inspiration here in the beautiful county of Gloucestershire, home to over 45 festivals every year, including 2000trees, Wychwood and the world-famous Cheltenham Literature festival. Many students gain valuable skills and experience working at these events alongside their studies.

Why Paramedic Science?
Our Paramedic Science degree gives you both the theory and practical skills you’ll need to be a successful paramedic, working at the cutting-edge of healthcare in a dynamic and sought-after role. With opportunities to work in practice settings and take on real-world challenges, alongside experienced paramedics who will both inspire you and help you to hone your skills, our graduates will stand out from the competition. Our students learn the latest techniques and practices from lecturers with extensive knowledge of contemporary pre-hospital care, utilising cutting-edge equipment and simulated medical settings. They benefit from training with ultra-realistic Lifecast body simulation and SynDaver anatomy manikins, along with iSimulate Realiti defibrillator and ECG simulation technology, helping properly prepare them for the challenges they will face in the real world.
Developed in partnership with South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT), our course is pending Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) approval, which will enable graduates to apply for HCPC registration as a paramedic. On completion of this course, you’ll be ready to enter a challenging but meaningful career with the decision-making, leadership and communication skills needed to work effectively, safely and ethically.
