The sense of community and the optimal location between two major Scottish cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow, were some of the main reasons why Devlin chose to study at the University of Stirling. 

Talking about the key benefits of the BSc Paramedic Science course, Devlin said: “Because the course has a small cohort, I’ve got to know many people very well and I feel that will be beneficial going forward into employment as we’re largely going into the same field, which will give me a solid network of people I can reach out to in the future.”

He continued: “I enjoyed my ambulance-based placements and clinical skills days most throughout the course as they allowed for a practical manner of learning which I’m very receptive to. “

Excited to start his career as a paramedic, Devlin added: “I believe the course I’ve studied has left me prepared to enter my chosen field, and as the paramedic science is an emerging field, I believe having a degree at this stage will land me in good stead should I aim to undergo further study in the years to come.”

The piece of advice Devlin would give to any potential students considering coming to study at Stirling is: “Attending seminars, even optional ones, makes a massive difference to your understanding of the materials in a way that heavily compliments your own individual readings and self-learning.“
