Course: BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science

Hello all! My name is Alex. I am a 19-year-old student paramedic with the London Ambulance Service, studying BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science at Anglia Ruskin University. I am a second year student at ARU’s Chelmsford campus and have my frontline ambulance placement in central London. I live in the city centre with fellow students in my cohort and my parents live in Brighton and Swansea. I am very active here at Anglia Ruskin; I am in the Chelmsford Men’s Badminton Team for the university and we regularly have fixtures both at home and away. Outside of university I am a volunteer photographer and speaker for London’s Air Ambulance, further supported by my interest in portraiture and street photography with cinematic film production.
