BSc Paramedic Science
Lennoxtown native, Roisin enjoyed the hands-on experience that the course offers. “Seeing and experiencing different hospital departments along with different ambulance stations across the three NHS regions was great, as I was able to see how different places worked and how each health board differed in their pathways. Spending four weeks rotating through the maternity and paediatric wards was a highlight of mine, it was a totally new and unique experience for me.“ she explained.
The advice Roisin would give to any potential students is: “Get involved in some of the many sports teams Stirling offers. There’s support for just about everything, so if you’re struggling, simply reach out and someone will happily help you. Make friends with people on your course and the people you live with, if you decide to stay in student halls because they’ll help carry you through the difficult times. But, most of all, don’t forget to take a break from studying and enjoy your time at university as it sadly doesn’t last forever!”
Talking about the impact studying at Stirling will have on her career as a Paramedic, Roisin said: “I believe my studies have provided a great foundation to allow me to build my career on. I’m grateful to say I have already secured a job in the area of my choice and I’m excited about what my future holds.”
