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

The project supports S4-6 pupils to make informed choices about university study. We work with pupils across Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, Moray, Highlands, Orkney and Shetland.
