Here are five top tips to help you get the most out of your experience at a UCAS virtual exhibition.
1. Make sure you’ve set up your profile
Don’t forget to sign in ahead of the event and set up your profile. Add a photo and a bit about yourself so you can quickly introduce yourself to unis, colleges, apprenticeship providers, and other exhibitors!
2. Plan your sessions
There are lots of live sessions for you to take part in on the day – from student finance advice to apprenticeship info. To find out what’s on, keep an eye out for our emails or visit your event page.
3. Write a list of questions
This is your chance to get answers from the experts, so it’s a good idea to start thinking and make a note of any questions you’d like to ask. For example, what’s on campus, can you choose your modules, and what’s the accommodation like?
4. Keep away from distractions
We know being at home can mean distractions. Set up somewhere you can fully focus – not in reaching distance of the TV remote!
5. Get stuck in!
We’ve got lots in store, but it’s up to you to get involved and make the most of your experience. Speak to as many exhibitors as you can, take part in live sessions, meet current students, get your questions answered, and discover options you may not have previously known or thought about.
