The aim of this top-up programme is to give existing paramedic practitioners the opportunity to widen their academic portfolios, as well as build upon clinical knowledge through the integration of theory and practice. The course is designed to integrate in-depth clinical knowledge with core skills, such as management and leadership. It aims to enable the Paramedic to lead and develop out-of-hospital care, and to be able to critically appraise their own and others’ practice.
The BSc (Hons) Enhanced Paramedic Practice has been designed not only to develop individuals, but to influence the NHS service as a whole.
Part-time: Two to five years.

Throughout this course you will be working with vulnerable groups of individuals including children. In order to ensure that the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing offers places on their programmes to the most suitable candidates you will all be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance (formerly termed CRB). The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing will be able to guide you through this process once you have been successfully offered a conditional place at the University. It is important to note that any unsatisfactory Enhanced DBS clearance may result in the offer of your place being withdrawn even if you have already started your course.
The programme is made up of 5 core modules which accrue a total of 120 credits at Level 6.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
