I liked being able to hear talented students sing or perform on stage during the exhibition, and also nearly all universities brought graduate students for certain subjects to allow us to ask questions, since they have already experienced the course.

What I loved about Create Your Future was talking to tutors and students, and understanding the courses and the unis, all in one place. Everyone was very helpful, and I really loved all the bands that played. Great atmosphere.
