The University of Edinburgh’s Pathways to the Professions project provides information and guidance to school students interested in studying Law, Medicine or Veterinary Medicine. At the present time, the project is open to students from all 46 state schools in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

AchieversUK.com aims to raise the aspirations of young people by highlighting the success of former pupils of their school.
The initiative focuses not only on high flyers, but also on individuals who may not be household names but who carry out a vital role in society. This helps pupils realise there is more to individual success than simply becoming rich and famous.
As youngsters are introduced to individuals in whose footsteps they are following, they gain confidence and realise they too can go on to be successful in a variety of ways.
Schools or other organisations which wish to become involved in the AchieversUK.com project should contact:
