Hughes Hall is launching the Pathways Programme for 2023-2024.
This is a unique, innovative and cohesive programme offered to all our students. It is designed to support you in developing the necessary academic skills to thrive in your course, build a sense of community and cultivate your personal wellbeing, and strengthen transferable skills to take with you beyond your degree.

More about the Pathways programme
Content is grouped into three Pathways:
- The Pathway to Learning supports your academic success by fostering independent learning, critical thinking, and creative problem solving. You will practice skills such as academic writing, note making, and working with your supervisor.
- The Pathway to Living encourages personal development alongside a sense of community and citizenship. You will discover essential skills like financial and health literacy, as well as developing your abilities in handling setbacks and contributing to a culture of consent.
- The Pathway to Leading equips students with the tools they can take into the workplace and their future lives. You can gain experience in crafting a CV and practicing your interview skills, as well as planning your career and professional development.
In order to make the Pathways programme as accessible and useful as possible we have chosen to employ a blended learning approach. You can engage with content online, in group sessions, and in one-to-one meetings with a member of the Pathways team.
The Pathways programme is led by Dr Ellie Greer, Pathways Programme Manager. Ellie has experience in supporting students’ academic progress and professional development, and is always available to offer guidance and individualised assistance to Hughes students. The College Head of Wellbeing, Dr Ben Marshall, works closely with Ellie in developing and delivering content for the Pathways programme and supporting students to flourish during their time at Hughes Hall.
