Ulster University Discovery Academy

Ulster University Discovery Academy

The Discovery Academy is an outreach platform open to all pupils from Year 8-14, it’s free, self-paced and there are currently have 75+ courses on offer.


Each course is aligned with curriculum, personal development or showcases pathways into university disciplines. We encourage pupils to jump from course to course, subject to subject, if they don’t like a course, that’s no problem, try a different one, there is no penalty for not completing, The essence of the Academy is to build curiosity and aspirations around future pathways for young people.


The academy allows pupils to explore subjects perhaps that they don’t study, it can also be used as curriculum enrichment, a popular one is “Prepping for Uni” for Year 13/14 and ‘Study Skills’ for Year 8-14, so that the pupils can track their revision.


Pupils receive an Ulster University Certificate for each course completed, alongside the recognition of ‘Ulster University Academy Scholar’ and their Blazer Recognition Pins.  We also advise the pupils to add this for their CV or UCAS application etc.
