Explore and meet
When students sign in to UCAS futures, first they’ll arrive in the explore and meet area. From there, they can see all the universities, colleges, apprenticeship providers, and careers organisations that are exhibiting, and choose which they’d like to find out more from. They’ll be able to:
- have 1:1 conversations with staff from universities, colleges, apprenticeship providers, and careers organisations
- find links to more information about courses and open days
- connect with universities, colleges, apprenticeship providers, and careers organisations on social media
- access helpful resources, such as digital prospectuses and accommodation information
Personal statement workshops
Personal statement experts will be live on the hour, every hour, sharing what evidence to include, admissions team insights, and top tips to make it memorable.
These interactive workshops are the perfect time for students to get their questions answered, and to get dedicated advice for evidencing their interest in specific subjects.
Listen and attend
This is where webcasts will take place. These are helpful seminars delivered by UCAS and exhibitors from the event. They cover useful information in more detail, to help students understand their options and next steps. There will also be plenty of time at the end of each session to ask questions.
