On 12th March, Year 12 went to Manchester for a higher education fair run by UCAS. After having to get up at a ridiculous hour to then sit on a coach, the fair was going to have to be good to cheer up the tired and moody sixth formers!
The fair was held in a humongous hall room filled with hundreds of different universities from around the UK and other various career and future provider options including MOD recruiting and apprenticeships from graphic design to working for Rolls Royce.
Throughout the day there were seminars on different aspects of the application to university and life at university and if you weren’t interested in anything educational, you could spend the day trying to collect as many pens, pencils, chocolate and other freebies!
Many students have said that the fair was very useful, informative and valuable. Another said ‘It has given me motivation to go to university and you can’t say no to freebies’ another said ‘it was extremely helpful and helped me decide which university to go to’.
The fair was packed full of ambassadors from UCAS and universities willing to answer any questions or offer any guidance you need.
The fair is a great day out and we will all recommend going!
