Join UCAS experts, university and college representatives, and industry professionals at this unique, campus-based event. A great opportunity to hear from both visiting exhibitors, as well as see, in detail, what the host university can offer.

With inspirational talks, topical seminars, application process advice, and interactive stands, this is an event experience like no other.

Find out what life is like on a university campus, and ask current students from a range of universities what it’s really like to study a certain subject. It’s the perfect opportunity to ask those burning questions that Google just can’t answer.

Whether it’s about kick-starting research or refining choices, there’s something for everyone at a UCAS exhibition.

‘A UCAS exhibition will focus your research and get you thinking about what you really want from your future.’ – Charlotte, English student.
