What are exhibitions?
We organise a whole host of higher education exhibitions right across the UK every year. These events are essentially huge exhibitions hosting stands from most UK universities and colleges, plus many employers and voluntary agencies. They’re a great opportunity for any of your students who aren’t sure about ‘what’s next’, or have an idea but would like to explore their options.
As well as getting right in front of admissions staff and subject specialists from unis, there’s the chance to explore sponsored degrees, school leaver programmes, and apprenticeships, as well as volunteer work and gap year opportunities. There really is something for everyone!
The way you register for exhibitions is changing...
All our exhibitions are now open for registration and as with previous years, you’ll need to register your centre and tell us how many students you’ll be bringing along with you. However this year, your students will also need to individually register themselves to get their tickets.
Once they’ve registered, we’ll be able to send them some useful info to help them make the most of their time at the exhibition – including two ‘top tip’ emails packed with advice on how to prepare and what to expect.
Everyone who has registered will need to print their tickets and bring them to the exhibition. If they forget their tickets, they’ll need to register again at the door. To avoid waiting in long queues – and the perilously changeable English weather – make sure you remind all your students to print their tickets and bring them with them on the day.
As well as giving us the opportunity to pass on useful advice to your students, exhibitors will also be able to scan the printed tickets – with permission, of course. This will enable them to send tailored, helpful advice to your students about the courses or career paths they’re interested in. This saves learners from having to verbally give their details to each uni or college they’re interested in over and over again.
