This article describes the design, development and purpose behind a new undergraduate part-time programme from the University of
Hertfordshire, the BSc (Hons) in applied paramedic science. In attending the programme, paramedics with or without prior experience of higher education have the opportunity to undertake continuing professional
development activities, which advance their clinical skills and knowledge. Several exit opportunities, with an academic award are possible; such as a Diploma
in applied paramedic science following a minimum of nine months taught academic study. Education is delivered through a blended-learning strategy, using innovative e-learning activities and focused campus attendances, teaching in specialist facilities developing advanced clinical abilities.
