Based on the ECU student reviews that we've collected, here's some advice for future students:
Prepare your week, be organised and don't fall behind or leave things to the last minute;
Consider the Uni prep course, it will give you a better understanding than school does;
If you can, look for opportunities to work in your industry while studying, it's better to grow a network before you finish;
Utilise the teaching staff/faculties - ask questions, understand better and find out about placement opportunities;
Don't cram - try to study during the term session;
Make use of the student support services & systems;
If there's an industry trip or networking night, make sure you go, ask questions and get peoples contact details.

Positive: great support from teaching staff, great interactive workshops
Negative: not enough on road experience.

My advice to future students - Work hard, study as much as you can and seek advice from graduated Ambulance paramedics to guide your studies and skills.

Overall, I'd recommend this course to a friend. I find the support the Uni provided was excellent and made the whole experience amazing.

Great to learn, awesome lecturers who have learnt in the field.
We don’t get to go out on the road which makes learning real skills hard.

My advice to future students is: Volunteer with the ambos, make study groups and enjoy it

It’s intensity for knowing what to do in the real situation is awesome. Love clinical workshops and meeting new people.

Hate that we can’t go on road with St John as students, and how strict it can be

My advice to future students is: Work hard and get clinical practice wherever you can

Positives: The course provides opportunity to work in multiple states in Australia, and internationally. Most of the lectures and tutors have on road experience in the Paramedic field both in Australia and Internationally, meaning that everything we are taught is related to real experience, and the level of detail when teaching Clinical skills is at a high standard. Exposure is easy gained with different options and places for practicals to be completed.

Negatives: It's quite costly up front, you need to pay for multiple immunisations and clearances within a small time frame. The uniform is also expensive. It's a very sort after course so the classes are big and means that certain skills don't get the one-on-one time that you always want. It is a lot of information to take in, in such a smell time so a lot of time needs to be put into it, which is hard when people work.

My advice to future students is: Make sure you have some money saved to pay for the upfront costs of immunisations and clearances, as they can't be hexed, and need to be done in the first couple of weeks. You have to be able to adapt to a fast paced environment and are exposed to lots of confronting things, so its not for someone who is light hearted. Don't fall behind in classes, because if you fail one, your whole degree will be set back by a year.
