Queen's has a long tradition of attracting students from a wide variety of backgrounds. We are committed to ensuring that those who are "most able but least likely" are given the opportunity to progress to Higher Education.
The University has established a Widening Participation Unit with the purpose of raising the aspirations of those from backgrounds where attendance at University is not usual. The Widening Participation Unit actively works with schools, both secondary and primary, across Northern Ireland to reach out to pupils from low participation backgrounds.
Its Queen's Academy programme gives 2000 pupils from non-selecting secondary schools the opportunity to come to Queen's to take part in a wide range of 'taster' events.
