  • You will be qualified to start working in the industry faster as you can apply for medic work or the like whilst you study at university to complete your degree.
  • Imagine graduating from university with real industry experience?

Who would you choose at an interview for a Paramedic position?

  • John Smith with a Bachelor Degree
  • or YOU who holds a Bachelor degree and 2 years’ industry experience as a medic or the like.

It just makes sense – best of both world’s (not to mention the networking you can do in the industry to get that Paramedic career at the end of university).

  • APC diploma graduates have previously been credited for multiple subjects within their degree. This often shortens the length of their degree while allowing them to work in the health care industry while they study
  • The subjects credited differ depending on the courses offered within the degree per university. This can be subject to change as some universities have different entry requirements. We recommend you check with your chosen university.

What our students are saying

“On my first university placement with QUT, my diploma from APC has served me well, with the comments that I am doing better than a lot of third year paramedic students. Getting heaps of experience and LOVING IT!”…Rachel

“The diploma really set me up well for the degree”

“I started my journey to become a paramedic 5 years ago with APC, whilst working full-time to make sure I wanted to change careers. The course material was really comprehensive and I had great support from the educators and admin. The prac (clinical workshops) weeks really pulled everything together and the trainers were very experienced and knowledgeable. The diploma really set me up well for the degree. I graduated from QUT Dec 2019 with distinction. For me, studying with APC helped me decide this is what I wanted as a new career, and helped me believe in myself that I could return to study in my 40’s. I have just started as a Registered Paramedic with NSW Ambulance at 47 years old. and I’m not the oldest in my cohort. It is never too late to find your dream job and go for it.”


(never too old to study – our student’s reveal their thoughts)

“It was a nice feeling this morning – feeling pretty special”

“I was a student with the APC having completed Certificate IV, I have gone on the pursue the Bachelor of Paramedicine with Charles Sturt University (CSU). It was a nice feeling this morning when I received this weeks readings from Sam Willis (former senior lecturer APC, now at Charles Sturt University). Feeling pretty special with my signed copy, having been taught by Sam and having the APC with me along with me though my academic journey!” (read the full article here)
