Higher Education Exhibition for the north west arrives in Bangor

Local students can get their uni questions answered at Bangor University’s UCAS higher education exhibition on Wednesday 15 June.

Students from across the counties of Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey applying for university or college should visit the UCAS exhibition at Bangor University to learn all about life in higher education.

Dozens of universities and colleges from across the UK will be available to speak to anyone thinking about taking their first step into higher education.

The event on 15 June from 10.00 to 1.00 is also a great opportunity for young people to ask UCAS advisers the burning questions about their applications.

Michael Smith, UCAS Interim Head of Events said: “UCAS exhibitions are a great way to find out about life after exams – whether that means university, volunteer work, a gap year or career opportunities. We really encourage people to come along to [venue] and see what their future could look like.”

Llinos Williams. Schools Liaison Officer at Bangor University said: “It’s important that our students make informed choices at this crucial stage. Our event on Wednesday is the ideal chance to find out what’s on offer straight from the universities and colleges they could be studying at very soon.”

Bangor University has been hosting UCAS exhibitions for three years and around 900 students usually visit each year.

Students can find more about getting the most out of visiting an exhibition at www.ucas.com/prep. UCAS organises over 50 exhibitions each year around the UK.
