The Reach Programme at the University of Aberdeen provides information, advice and guidance on applying for professional degrees. We offer support in the following areas: 

  • Law 
  • Medicine 
  • Accountancy and Finance 
  • Computing Science
  • Engineering 
  • Psychology

The project supports S4-6 pupils from target schools to make informed choices about university study. We work with target schools across Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, Moray, Highlands, Orkney and Shetland. The programme has recently been expanded to include provision in Accountancy, Computing Science, Engineering and Psychology. 

What support is available through Reach? 

We offer a range of career insight days, application support sessions and shadowing opportunities. We can also provide general advice about applying and studying at University. Events are normally held in Aberdeen and Inverness.
