Our innovative Pathways to the Professions programmes have been designed to expand knowledge, develop skills, and give an insight into what university life is really like for those students with ambitions to study Healthcare, Business, Law or Engineering and Technology (STEM) for university.
Full Event Details:
During the eighteen-month programmes, which students will complete alongside studying for their A Levels and BTEC courses, successful applicants will be given the opportunity to take part in various enrichment activities to help support their journeys into Higher Education. Activities vary from stream to stream, but can include subject specific taster days, academic tutoring delivered by current Aston University undergraduates, UCAS Application support and a Summer School Residential.
These sustained programmes of activity aim to raise students' aspirations, improve their motivation to progress onto Higher Education and provide them with the knowledge, skills and experiences that will enhance their UCAS applications. During their time on the programme, students will be exposed to a range of leading experts from Aston University and key professionals from within their streams corresponding sector. Students will also get the opportunity to meet current Aston University students and ask them about their Higher Education experiences to help them make informed decisions about their futures.
