UCAS, the UK’s biggest service for applications to higher education, will be holding an exhibition at Newcastle Utilita Arena on April 30.
The convention starts from 9.30am on Tuesday and runs until 5pm. The event will give the students greater insight of what’s like to study a certain subject or to be taught by lecturers who are professionals in certain area of studying.
Kayla Blindell, UCAS’s event organiser said: “The Tyneside UCAS exhibition is an opportunity for students to explore their future options. We have UCAS experts and over 130 university apprenticeship representatives on hand to offer advice.
“In addition to this, we have our 360-degree dome experience, interactive graffiti wall, topical seminars, interactive stands and plenty of application advice available at this event. Whether it’s about kick-starting research or refining choices, there’s something for everyone at a UCAS exhibition.”
Every year UCAS holds exhibitions across the UK, helping students to make the right choice and discover what is the right future for them.
In 2017, UCAS managed to process 2.85 million applications from 699,850 UK, EU, and international students. UCAS are also governed by a Board of Trustees, the majority of whom are leaders of higher or further education providers.
The University of Sunderland will also take a part in the event. A spokesperson said: “Similar to previous years, the University will have a strong visible presence at the Tyneside UCAS Higher Education Exhibition next month.
“Staff will be on hand to answer queries about the University’s full course provision, including new programmes such as Medicine, Social Media Management and Paramedic Science and Out of Hospital Care.
“Our team will also be able to provide information about our full scholarship provision, accommodation and campus facilities. Students visiting the stand will be able to personalise their own prospectus with programme information they are specifically interested in studying.”
Students will be able to meet variety of university representatives, employers, and gap year specialists, as well as current students.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome to come.
The General Manager of Utilita Arena, Ailsa Oliver said: “Utility Arena is excited to welcome UCAS back to the arena. It’s great opportunity to explore career and further study options. We are delighted to host such a significant event for school pupils of the North East.”
