We are pleased to provide details of our 2019 Higher Education Admissions Fair for Access to HE Students. Since 2016, when we hosted the first HE Admissions Fair for Access to HE Students in the North of England, the event has grown year on year. We have received really positive feedback from students, tutors and exhibitors on the fantastic opportunities it provides and over 75% of students learnt something they didn’t know previously or discovered a new Higher Education Institution or Undergraduate course they were interested in.

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. The event will be promoted across all Access to HE providers in the North of England and information on the event will reach over 2500 students studying the Access to HE Diploma.

This event is exclusively for students on QAA-recognised Access to HE courses and so it is an ideal opportunity to ask your questions about your future.

We will bring together Higher Education Institutions and Access to the Student and Tutors to allow you to:

  • Speak directly to representatives from HE providers about their courses, and discuss what they offer mature students.
  • Speak directly with employers about career opportunities available and progression routes after graduation.
  • Find out how HE providers handle applications and what they are looking for from Access to HE applicants.
  • Attend free workshops on writing your personal statement, student finance and funding, through to subject specific courses.

The following organisations will be exhibiting at the event to date:

    Coventry University - Scarborough
    Durham University

“One Awards' innovative results service has been a fantastic development for universities and allows us to check students' achievement immediately ourselves. This is an excellent service which means that we are able to confirm student places quickly and effectively without having to follow up with providers and students or wait for results to be sent on to us. This is because their certification turnaround time of less than two days allows One Awards to process student results almost as soon as the colleges/providers have provided the final verified results. This really does help us put students at the heart of our confirmation process”.
