QUB Pathway Opportunity Programme


Are you in Year 13 and hope to study at Queen’s University, Belfast?

The Pathway Opportunity Programme is a route for talented young people from Northern Ireland who have the ability to study at Queen’s University but may require additional support and encouragement to reach their full potential.

Throughout Year 13 and 14, you will benefit from a structured series of events designed to aid progression to Queen’s University, including receiving admissions guidance and support. You will also participate in a residential assessed summer school at the end of Year 13. Participants who successfully complete the programme will benefit with a guaranteed conditional offer in a course within their Pathway and potentially benefit from receiving a reduced grade offer for a programme of study at Queen’s University, which may be up to two A-level grades lower than the standard offer.

Queen’s University has selected seven Pathway subject areas as part of the Pathway Opportunity Programme:

  • AHSS (Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences)
  • Archaeology and Palaeoecology
  • Business
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Food, Microbiology and Environment
  • Law
