Never been to a virtual exhibition before? Don’t worry, we’re here to guide you through what to expect from your first visit, and help you make the most of the experience.

Get ready…

Before the event, it’s a good idea to start thinking about who you want to speak to on the day, and which sessions you want to join. You can see which unis and apprenticeship providers are exhibiting on our website, so have a look at your chosen date and pick out the ones you’re most interested in, and a few you want to find out some more about.

You’ll be surprised by the range of courses each uni offers, so it’s a good idea to visit as many as you can to be sure you don’t miss out on potentially discovering your ideal course. Courses vary a lot, so have a think about what’s important to you, is there a specific topic within your subject you definitely want to study?

Once you’ve decided on who you want to see, think about the questions you’ll ask:

  • Do you want to know what to expect from a certain course?
  • Or finding out about accommodation options and campus facilities?
  • Or do you have questions about COVID and studying in 2022?

Find a space

Find yourself a quiet spot where you won’t be distracted to start exploring the event. This is your chance to access tons of resources, and meet over 100 unis and apprenticeship providers in one place, so make the most of it! Grab yourself a pen and paper, and get stuck in.

The technical bit

You’ll need WiF to access the event, and for the best experience we recommend signing in from a desktop or laptop computer rather than a mobile device, and using Google Chrome as your browser.

If you can’t sign in, or you get stuck with a technical issue, get in touch at events@ucas.ac.uk or visit the help desk inside the event and we’ll get you sorted.

What to expect

With six zones to explore, including an exhibition hall with over 100 unis and apprenticeship providers, you’ll need plenty of time to make sure you can see everything. Have a look at our ultimate UCAS/Discovery day checklist to make sure you don’t miss a thing!

Remember, the unis will be there in person on the event day to answer your questions live, so make the most of speaking to them. After the live event, you can still contact them using the ‘Contact us’ button on their stands, but responses won’t be instant.

Get stuck in…

Just sign in on the day to get stuck in! Your future starts here…
