The Paramedical Science course at ECU has fantastic lecturers who are very active in the Paramedicine community. They're approachable, knowledgeable and passionate.Within the course we are exposed to really diverse learning environments, including an ambulance, a simulation centre which mimics hospitals, as well as a number of practical-learning scenarios across the campus, and at the Police Academy next door.The course isn't all theory-based, which is fantastic. I've found that the course structure consolidates theory with practical units and work experience.
I've had the opportunity to work at events giving first aid to the community, as well as complete placements with GPs and in aged care. I was also attracted to the prospects of travelling with my degree and knew ECU has affiliations with the UK and Northern Territory.
