Tan, UCAS Discovery attendee

"I did a lot of research early on about the path I wanted to take, and the UCAS Discovery event helped me formulate my CV ready for the apprenticeship I wanted to apply to. The event helped me to identify the skills I needed to build on to be a successful candidate. I went on to do a finance apprenticeship at Warner Bros."

Anna, UCAS Discovery attendee

“I knew she wanted to study an artsy subject and go into an art-based career. I always loved subjects like music and art, and going to UCAS Discovery and talking to all the people there about the options available helped me decide which course would be best for her. I’m now studying concept art for games and film at Staffordshire University.”
