Career Information

In St. Mary's, careers information is provided to pupils in many ways throughout the school.

There is a Careers Library where pupils can access a wealth of careers information. Additionally, each subject department within the school has a dedicated Careers Information Board which includes details such as careers connected to particular subjects or the destination of former students who studied particular subjects. Throughout each year, a number of Guest Speakers, including past pupils, deliver presentations on areas that are linked to current employment trends.

In Year 14, all students have the opportunity to attend an Open Day at Queen’s University, Belfast and the University of Ulster. For those interested students, provision is also made to attend the Open Day at other universities, including Cambridge University and Oxford University. Interested Year 14 students also have the opportunity to attend Medical and Paramedical Open Days organised by a number of Health Trusts.
