Right now 73% of students applying to university and college are yet to decide their final choices. With many open days cancelled, students need more help than ever to get the facts they need to make informed decisions.
To help, many universities are hosting live, virtual exhibitions. With advice on how to research options during the pandemic, write personal statements, and student finance, it's a chance for students to get their questions answered by subject and admissions specialists.
Take a look at the UCAS website which lists upcoming virtual expos in a variety of subjects:-
