OSFC launches Aspiring Lawyers Programme
Following on from the successful launch of the Aspiring Medics Programme (AMP) last month, OSFC is proud to announce the launch of the Aspiring Lawyers Programme (ALP).
Medicine and Law are two of the most popular choices for our students, and are among the most competitive degree courses with rigorous selection processes. Last year 56 OSFC students applied for a Law degree, and a fantastic 93% obtained places. ALP guarantees a programme of support sessions to ensure that Law applicants are fully prepared for their next step.
At the launch session, 22 OSFC students were joined by Dr Ruth Lamont, Senior Lecturer in Child and Family Law at the University of Manchester, Jenny Arnold, former OSFC student from JMW Solicitors in Manchester, and Beth Roberts, a former OSFC student, currently in her second year studying Law at Durham.
Beth said, “It’s a fantastic opportunity for students to hear from a university student perspective and to find out what a Law degree is actually like”, encouraging the students to ask any questions.
Ruth Lamont said, “It was a pleasure to come to Oldham Sixth Form College and meet you and your students. I think your plans for the ‘Aspiring Lawyers Programme’ are excellent and the idea of a panel worked very well.”
If you are interested in studying Law in the future, apply now to have the opportunity of joining the Aspiring Lawyers Programme in 2018.
