Life-saving demonstrations at Open Day


Roadside paramedic techniques are among the activities people can try at the next University of Greenwich Open Day, at the Avery Hill campus on Saturday 23 November.


Experts will be running hands-on sessions looking at resuscitation and what to do when someone is choking. Our midwifery team will also be using a life-size doll to demonstrate a birth.

Academics from all faculty courses, including nursing and teaching, will be on hand to answer questions about their subjects and life at the university.

And our nursing and paramedic science students with be on hand to demonstrate:

  • lifesaving skills using our resuscitation dummies
  • have your blood pressure taken
  • try a breath test.

On our beautiful Medway campus in the Nelson Skills Labs N007 there will also be demonstrations from our paramedic science students on all the above and more.

Third year student Nidhi Goswami said of her time at the university: "I love my course and waking up every morning to come to the university. I've learned how to live on my own and experience uni life. It's been amazing, I've learned so much."

The Avery Hill campus is home to the Faculty of Education, Health & Human Sciences. There will be sports science demonstrations using the university's state-of-the-art equipment and more hands-on sessions, including everyday health techniques, such as taking blood pressure and giving an injection.

There are Open Days taking place at the Greenwich and Medway campuses as well. They are a great chance to explore our historic campuses, visit student accommodation, find out about finance, and chat to our students and staff to get a real taste for university life.
