How You Study
What You Need to Know
We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
An Introduction to Your Modules
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
Placements are designed to reflect the scope of modern paramedic practice and may take place in a range of settings within primary, acute, urgent, community, and emergency care. Throughout placements a mentor will support learning and assess competence.
Students are required to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs while on placement, however, may be eligible for the NHS Learning Support Fund.
In line with their preparation for a career as a paramedic, students should gain a full category C1 driving licence by the end of the programme at their own cost.
"The teaching styles of the lecturers and the amazingly equipped clinical suites are second to none, not to mention the fantastic simulation days, which are so realistic! I am proud to be a University of Lincoln student!"Shannon Kerry-Davies, BSc Paramedic Science student
