You’re there to learn as much as possible about all of the potential universities you’re interested in studying at, but there’s much more to a UCAS Fair than wondering about for the day. There’s a tonne of things to pick up whilst you’re there and our latest Top 5 explores just that…
Grab yourself a free pen from pretty much any of the university stalls – you can never have enough, and they’ll come in handy if you want to make notes at any point in the day.
You could build a small fort out of all of the prospectuses you’ll come across on the day, so instead of picking up every one in sight, it’s always good to do some forward planning before the event to focus on a set number of unis to make the most of your time.
Once you’re up to your eyeballs with pens and prospectuses, there’ll always be some space for an array of freebies – why not make it a bit of a competition with your friends to see who can get the weirdest!
And if you’ve taken note of the above points, it’s probably also a great idea to source yourself a bag to contain all your new belongings.
But of course, the most important thing you can pick up at a UCAS Fair is a tonne of knowledge about university life and which course is the right one for you come next September!
