To make the most of your time at the UCAS exhibition, here are a few things you need to remember.
  1. Plan how you’re getting there – check if your school/college has arranged transport for you. If you’re not visiting as part of a group, be sure to check the venue location before sorting any travel arrangements.
  2. Wear comfy shoes – it sounds silly, but you will be on your feet for most of the day, so comfy footwear is a must.
  3. Take a good sized bag – there will be lots of prospectuses, brochures, and leaflets for you to collect, and there may be some freebies too.
  4. Prepare questions – this is the perfect opportunity for you to find out key information from colleges, employers, and student services. Make a list of questions to help you decide which route, provider, or course is right for you.
  5. Visit each type of stand – be sure you’re making the right choice. By visiting only university stands, for example, you won’t get to hear or ask questions about a degree level apprenticeship.
  6. Take a pad and pen – take notes. Make sure you jot down your thoughts and answers to questions, so you can look back at them later.
  7. Get your ticket scanned – scan your ticket on the stands which interest you, and we’ll send you personalised information, straight to your inbox.

And most importantly, ask questions.
