Admissions Conference 2021

Date and location
This event has now finished


Welcome to UCAS Annual Admissions Conference 2021

This is the event for the UK’s admissions community to come together to learn, debate, and challenge each other on current issues and hot topics. The conference will be hosted virtually with a variety of speakers covering everything from reform in HE to student wellbeing and what our insights are telling us about student decision making. And to discuss how we can best work together to address these.

This year, the conference will orientate around how students make choices. We’ll explore how students make choices today, outlining the findings of our recent research in this area, as well as how they will make choices in the future, and how they apply for these choices.

There will be sessions covering admissions, recruitment, and marketing – giving a range of options for all delegates. We’ll continue to host the popular panel sessions, and hear from teachers and advisers, students, and parents. As ever, we’re pleased to host sessions facilitated by professionals sharing good practice in managing innovation and change in an ever-evolving sector. There will also be opportunity for networking and discussion, as well as a series of fun optional activities, including Louise Evans and Peter Derrick’s infamous quiz!

Whether you’re a newcomer, or you’ve enjoyed attending the event previously, I do hope you can join me and colleagues for an engaging, informative, and enjoyable three days.
