"Access to teaching resources is essential for any course; but even more so when it comes to saving lives. As a paramedic student, it's been a huge benefit to have access to the teaching ambulance throughout my degree. It helps make the scenarios more realistic so there are no shocks when we start working in the community." Third year Paramedic Science student Sara Riddle-Matthews on The John Villiers Trust Teaching Ambulance.Learn more about how being a CQUniversity donor can also meet your giving needs.
