Anglia Ruskin’s Chelmsford campus set to host 140 universities and FE colleges
Anyone interested in starting a Higher Education course from September 2013 and is looking for more information about where to go and what to study is being encouraged to attend the Essex UCAS Convention.
The event will take place on 27-28 June (9.30am-2.30pm) on Anglia Ruskin University’s Chelmsford campus, and approximately 8,000 students from across the region are expected to visit over the two days.
The exhibitors include nearly 140 universities and colleges, including the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, as well as large employers such as the RAF.
In addition to local institutions such as Anglia Ruskin University, the University of Essex and Writtle College, there will be representatives from universities stretching the length and breadth of the UK, ranging from the University of Aberdeen to Plymouth University.
A seminar programme will also run alongside the exhibition, providing talks on subjects such as forensic science, medicine, law and midwifery; as well as student finance and the UCAS application process.
