The power of UCAS Events

Young people crave the chance to communicate face-to-face. UCAS events allow you to do just that. Our Discovery days bring together HE providers, employers and industry/commercial brands and organisations to provide students with a wealth of knowledge and opportunities to assist with their future decision-making. Students can find out about traditional degrees, apprenticeships, careers, and much more. 

Start new conversations, answer their burning questions and generate more leads.

Student Feedback
Students wish they'd had more information before the event on which providers were exhibiting.

Marketing and Sponsorship Opportunities

Bring your brand to the forefront of students' minds before they visit your stand, and carry on the conversation once you've had that initial engagement with them. We have a great selection of marketing and sponsorship opportunities to get your brand in front of the right students at the right time, before, during and after the events.
