Pathways to the Professions

The Pathways to the Professions initiative is a key component of UCD’s commitment to become a ‘University for All’

The Pathways to the Professions project extends access beyond the university and academic success to career preparation and achievement.

The project uses the Law profession as a test bed to develop a model of best practice. This will then be extended (with appropriate adaptation) to a range of professions, including Archaeology, Architecture, Engineering, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Social Work etc. Taking a holistic approach, the Pathways to the Professions addresses barriers to early career progression and allows students to fulfil their career aspirations. The Pathways to the Professions follow the student lifecycle, from Pre-entry, University to Graduation. It aims to support students throughout their learning experience before and at university and onto early career success. The project is funded by UCD, Rethink Ireland and runs in conjunction with UCD Sutherland Opportunity supported by Mason Hayes & Curran. It is led by the UCD Access and Lifelong Learning.
