Access to High Demand Professions

Access to High Demand Professions (AHDP) is a programme run by seven institutions and funded by the Scottish Funding Council to help individuals from disadvantaged, non-traditional or underrepresented backgrounds to apply to high-demand subjects at university.

Widening access

The programme provides two branches of tailored support to better understand and access competitive courses in higher education - Reach (access to high demand subjects such as; law, economics, medicine, veterinary medicine, and dentistry) and ACES (access to creative education in Scotland).
