Herts at the 2024 UCAS fairs


We wanted to let you know about UCAS fairs and why they're a great place to go to start your higher education research.

What is a UCAS fair?
Every year, UCAS holds higher education fairs across the UK to help students meet and research a range of universities. At these events, you can chat to unis and colleges about anything and everything, from courses and uni life to work placement opportunities and more.
The fairs also include talks on topics such as student finance, gap years and the application process.

Why go to a UCAS fair?
You can speak to lots of different universities in a short space of time and ask any specific questions you might have to help narrow down your choices.
You can leave your details to attend open days at the institutions you're interested in.
Often, your school or college will arrange a trip to the nearest fair, meaning you can go with friends. If not, you can go along individually and/or with family.

I worked at the UCAS fair we hosted in Colchester last year, it was so much fun! Looking forward to the next one. It's great that they're hosted all over the country so everyone gets a chance to visit and get more info.
