Pathways Opportunity Programme
The Pathway Opportunity Programme is a QUB widening participation programme, delivered in collaboration with various schools across the university. Students start the programme when they are in Year 13 at school and complete various tasks and activities from January to July. In July, the students have the opportunity to attend a one-week summer residential where they get a chance to learn more about their subject pathway through classes, trips, and various other activities.
In the School of Law, the Law Pathway Programme is designed and delivered by a team of PhD researchers, with the support of a number of lecturers. Current LLB students also assist the programme as academic guides. The programme is based on the theme of human rights law. Students have the chance to learn and think critically about various aspects of human rights law as well as participate in activities such as debates. As part of the programme, participants get the chance to hear from QUB law graduates and those working in the field of law in Northern Ireland. In December, a celebration event is held at QUB.
The programme is a fantastic opportunity to develop valuable skills, gain confidence in pursuing further study in law, and have a lot of fun along the way!
