    Course Summary

    The BSc degree in Paramedicine is designed as a 2 year supplement to a 2 year Diploma in Paramedicine, such as that offered by the Paramedicine Diploma Program at Holland College, or any of a wide range of other CMA-accredited institutions.  

    It is designed to help already trained paramedics to gain improved research, communication skills as well as the advanced biological and science knowledge they will need to qualify for higher level employment or to attend graduate school in this or nearly any other science field. Most of the modules you take will be in Biology, but there will be 4 courses specific to paramedicine. 

    You’ll learn quite a bit in those 2 years. You’ll study a wide range of foundational science subjects, some highly specialised life sciences modules and a few ‘capstone’ paramedicine specialist modules which will round out your existing Diploma level education into a bull Bachelor of Science degree. 

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning And Teaching

    Like almost all of UPEI’s degree programs, this one is delivered primarily through lectures, skill-based workshops and interactive seminar sessions. As this is both a practical and theoretical program, you can expect to spend a great deal of time in the lab as well as doing your own research. 

    A wide range of co-op education options can see you alternating between on-campus academic terms and on-site work terms within your field of specialty. 

    Career Possibilities

    This degree is designed to help trained paramedics advance their career prospects, either with their current employers or at a new role. However, many students continue their education at the Graduate and eventually PhD levels. A range of fellowships and scholarships are available to help finance your graduate school career.  

    Recent graduates have gone into lab diagnostics, biotech and environmental analysis, or have gone on to professional programs in physiotherapy, dentistry, medicine and veterinary medicine. 

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a full BSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have completed two years of training from a fully accredited paramedicine diploma program. However, sufficient credits can result in enrolment without the actual diploma.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test such as the IELTS.
