Existing awards for students offered a place on the Paramedic Practice BSc(Hons) are currently under review by the government's Department for Health and Department for Education: this means students starting this course in September 2018 may no longer be funded by the NHS. If this is the case, students will have access to standard Student Finance loans.
The outcome of the review is expected in early 2018, and we will provide details of funding arrangements when they become available.
