Following our first Admissions Fair for Access to HE Students in November 2016, we are delighted to continue to facilitate this important event which offers HE Institutions the opportunity to promote their courses, advice and support services to Access to HE students.

Last year’s event was the first Higher Education admissions fair for Access to HE Students in the North of England. The event was a success and positive feedback was received on the fantastic opportunity it gave both students and higher education providers to meet up and discuss opportunities available. Feedback from students showed that 75% found out something that they didn’t know or discovered a new university that offered courses they were interested in.
