POP University Information Session 2020
235 school students participate in the Pathway Opportunity Programme University Information Session in June 2020.
This week the Queen’s Pathway Opportunity Programme continued its work with 235 Year-13 students in supporting and encouraging them to come to Queen’s University in September 2021. Our University Information Session, which is usually an on-campus event in the Larmour Lecture Theatre, was run online this year as 8 individual conferences, one with each of the 8 subject specific Pathways (Law, Business, Engineering, BioSci, AHSS, Medicine Dentistry & Biomedical Science, Natural and Built Environment and Computer Science).
Using the Canvas VLE Conferencing technology we covered Student Finance and Budgeting, a Virtual Tour of Queen’s Quiz, A Day in the Life of a Queen’s student and Well-Being, along with touching on Admissions and Accommodation questions along the way. Engagement from the students was excellent and the craic was good!
We’re now looking forward to online week-long summer schools with each of the Pathways, allowing the students to learn much more about their specific Pathway subject and engage with the Queen’s academics, PhD demonstrators and Academic Guides (Queen’s undergrads).
