Student reviews

I want a career that makes a difference

"The feeling of doing something important. Being able to assist/help people who are in discomfort. I was accepted into the Australian Army as a combat medic. Unfortunately a health issue came up during medical examination. So I decided not to wait the two years for my life to start but to pursue this career outside of the army. I want a career that makes a difference."

Make the change and be good at it

"Study is not a problem. I started nursing when I was 26 and I had to study and work full time to meet my commitments. I have a job that's flexible and its not hard doing a job you love - it's just a redirection of what I love. I've had a lot of paramedics say you should make the change and you would be good at it; and I want a new challenge."

Being a part of such a rewarding industry

"Paramedical science interests me as I am passionate about the industry. I thoroughly enjoy helping others and believe that studying paramedical science can result in me becoming a paramedic and being a part of such a rewarding industry. It is my goal to work within an industry where I can help others; and my passion for the industry."

It's now or never!

"The excitement of heading out into the field not knowing what to

expect would be the best part, there is no telling what you may come across as no day or patient is the same. The driving force behind this is the thought of studying again is daunting, but the thought of not doing what I love is even worse. I admire the hard work and determination paramedics put in to ensure the health and well-being of complete strangers.

I'm ready to study again
