Paramedic - Chelmsford

What is ParaSoc

ParaSoc ARU is a society based out of Anglia Ruskin University Chelmsford and aims to benefit Student Paramedics and other students at university with an interest in pre-hospital and emergency medicine (PHEM) and the wider medical field.

ParaSoc aims to expand and enhance the knowledge of students with a combination of educational and social events throughout the year.


  • Guest Speakers
  • Social Events 
  • Joint Society events.
  • CPR Marathon 
  • And more to come for 2021-22


Being a member of ParaSoc and attending ParaSoc educational events will benefit your CPD. Attending guest speaker events and other lectures hosted by ParaSoc will allow you to claim a CPD certificate at the end of the academic year.

Educational events include:

  • Ballistics and terror lectures held by Paramedics within the TRU.
  • Other health care professionals within the pre-hospital environment.
  • Paramedicine and its different pathways after qualification.



Being a society, social events are a must. Throughout the year ParaSoc will host many social events including:

  • Fresher’s Pub Crawl.
  • Pub Quiz’s.
  • Nights out.
  • Sporting Activities.
  • Merchandise (Coming for Tri 1 2021)



Fundraising events throughout the year will allow for money to be collected to help medical based charities and causes. Last year money was raised for the British Heart Foundation, and the year before that Essex and Hertfordshire Air Ambulance Charity with a 24 Hour CPRathon, and the same will be happening this year in October.


How to join

Following the link on the Students Union ParaSoc page for the one-off yearly payment of £5 you will have access to all of the social events, guest speaker events and many other activities, including sports, for free or a discounted price (where non-members may be subjected to increased costs). 

Purchasing of membership will give members a ParaSoc branded membership card which will be proof of membership for future events.

Some events may be at an extra cost due to money needed to put on large events and will be ticketed.
