Tyneside higher education exhibition 2020 – POSTPONED

This event has now finished
Our exhibitions help students explore a wide range of academic and career opportunities, and discover a future that’s right for them.

Following guidance issued by the government throughout this week, UCAS has taken the decision to postpone all higher education exhibitions due to run through to the beginning of July.

While we’re sure this decision doesn’t come as a surprise, we apologise for any inconvenience this causes you, and would like to take the opportunity to reassure you that we’re focused on supporting you during this challenging and uncertain time.

We’re currently looking at a number of alternative options to ensure anyone interested in full-time higher education or higher or degree apprenticeships, is able to access the invaluable advice UCAS, universities, colleges, and employers can offer – including running some of the events in the autumn term, and delivering access to advice through a digital solution.


Join UCAS experts and hundreds of university representatives, employers, and gap year specialists at one of our largest events.

With inspirational talks, topical seminars, application process advice, and interactive stands, this is an event experience like no other. What’s more, current students are on hand to discuss 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.

Immerse yourself in a diverse range of career options in our 360 dome – an interactive experience where you decide the outcome!

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

‘I loved how there was such a huge variety of university options, and it has really helped me choose a university.’     

‘Getting to ask specific questions and get specific answers, which are difficult to get over the internet.’      

‘Having a visual of all the different universities, as they all look similar on paper, but they have such different vibes when you see their stands and how they present themselves.’      

‘Getting to speak to a variety of universities in one place was a very valuable experience.’    

Opening times
