Autumn Activities 2021

We’re pleased to announce UK University Search’s Autumn Activities, designed to help students get all the information they need to make informed decisions about their next steps. Our FREE events allow students to meet with universities, colleges, and apprenticeship providers from around the UK, and get answers to all of their questions.

We will be holding a mixture of virtual and in-person events designed to help students explore their local and national options, allowing them to meet with a wide range of exhibitors from around the UK.

Following popular demand, the virtual interactive event Meet The Russell Group will return on Wednesday 29th September, and the virtual UK University & Apprenticeship Search Fair will return on Wednesday 20th October.

We will also be hosting three new exciting webinars to help students who are interested in applying for Russell Group Universities to find out more about the application process. These are ideal for students looking to meet the October UCAS deadline, and as a warm-up for students attending Meet the Russell Group.

Virtual Fairs

We will be running two virtual fairs this Autumn to help students explore their next steps from anywhere with an internet connection.

Meet the Russell Group Virtual Event

Join us on Wednesday 29 September (12:00-19:00) for return of Meet the Russell Group, a free virtual event in association with UK University Search. This interactive experience will allow you to explore all 24 Russell Group universities and speak directly with their representatives and ambassadors, and take part in 13 live webinars led by Russell Group universities.

Taking place just before the October UCAS deadline for Oxford and Cambridge, medicine, dentistry and veterinary science courses, it will provide vital application support to Year 13s, and will help those working towards the January 2022 deadline. The event is also perfect for inspiring years 12s and 11s as they consider their post-18 options.

On Wednesday 20th October (12:00-18:00), students will be able to visit exhibition stands and chat to representatives from a wide range of universities including Russell Group, red brick, modern, and specialist universities, along with local and national apprenticeship providers and colleges. There will also be 10 live webinars on a wide range of topics such as UCAS personal statements, careers, student finance, and apprenticeships, all followed by Q&A sessions.
