RE: UK University & Apprenticeship Search Virtual Fair
We are encouraging students to take part in the UK University & Apprenticeship Search Virtual Fair on Wednesday 17th March (12:00-18:00). This free event features over 100 universities, colleges, and apprenticeship providers from around the UK, along with 10 interactive webinars and virtual campus tours, and is aimed at years 13, 12 and 11, as well as parents. The event will provide your child with all the information they need to make informed decisions about their post-18 options.
Students, parents and carers simply need to register online at: https://ukunisearch.vfairs.com
We recommend students and parents spend between 45 and 90 minutes at the event and can login at anytime between 12pm and 6pm.
Students and parents can chat directly with a mixture of Russell Group, red brick, and modern universities from around the UK to find out invaluable information about courses, modules and life at university, and discover what admissions tutors are looking for in UCAS applications. Attendees can also speak to colleges and local and national companies about their apprenticeship schemes. Many exhibitors also offer virtual campus tours.
10 interactive webinars will run throughout the day on a variety of university and apprenticeship topics, such as UCAS Personal Statements, Careers & Employability, Student Finance, and Apprenticeships. The webinars are run by university and apprenticeship professionals who will also host Q&A sessions after the presentations. You can view the webinar timetable and presenters list using this link: https://ukunisearch.vfairs.com/en/webinar-timetable
Each webinar is recorded so students can watch any of interest after the live session has taken place.
Students should aim to register in advance to receive reminder emails with new exhibitor alerts, information on how the day will work and how your child can make the most of the exhibitor interactions.
Please encourage your son or daughter to book their free place and view the exhibitor list here: https://ukunisearch.vfairs.com. We recommend registering for the event as soon as possible to ensure students have time to prepare for the big day.
