My Hartpury experience

I chose Uniformed Public Services at Hartpury because I want to become a paramedic. In the future I’ll be attending major incidents, so I found the module on crime and its effect on society and major incidents fascinating. We’ve done lots of practical sessions and I’ve gained industry qualifications as well as leadership and team building skills. I believe the diploma will help me to be mentally and physically prepared for my career.

My next steps

I’m about to set off on the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, Australia to China, before I start university. I wouldn’t be able to do this without the confidence and resilience I’ve developed at Hartpury.
