Connecting face-to-face with students



Our Discovery days bring together HE providers, employers and commercial brands to provide students with a wealth of opportunities to assist with their future decision making. Students can find out about traditional degrees, apprenticeships, careers and much more. Exhibitors have the opportunity to communicate face-to-face during this crucial part of their journey.
