Carina Bowler DipHE Paramedic Science

What did you enjoy the most about the course and studying at Swansea University?

I loved the fact that the course has a mixture of time in the university and ambulance/ hospital placements.

What skills did you learn from completing the course and how did they help you get a job?

The course taught me all the key skills needed as well as the background knowledge to become a paramedic.

Where are you currently working? What are you enjoying most

I’m working for the Welsh Ambulance service. I love everything about my job. Especially making a difference in people’s lives!

What would your advice be to new students?

It must be a career that you are passionate about. It is not an easy course but if it is what you want then it will make the course easier. It requires dedication and perseverance.

Carina completed her DipHE in Paramedic Science in 2011.
