  • As a paramedic student you will have the chance to improve your skills in our modern simulated laboratories that include two ambulances and emergency equipment used by paramedics world-wide.
  • Our Bachelor of Paramedicine was designed and is continually updated to ensure you understand and experience the realities of pre-hospital emergency care. The degree is accredited by the Paramedicine Board of Australia and listed as an approved degree with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
