Around 4000 students are expected to attend the Lincolnshire Higher Education Fair next Tuesday (19th June).


Hosted for the seventh year running by the University of Lincoln, over 100 nationwide higher education institutions and other organisations will exhibit at the event.


The event, organised by the University of Lincoln in conjunction with Connexions and UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service), will give students from over 40 Lincolnshire school sixth-forms and colleges the opportunity to speak to representatives from the various institutions, collect prospectuses and attend talks presented on a range of higher education related topics.


These talks are given by experts on various topics and include subjects such as advertising, law, teaching and design. Also available are general talks including the UCAS application process, funding university and how to get the best out of university life.


“The Lincolnshire Higher Education Fair gives sixth-form students from the local area a great opportunity to research what higher education institutions can offer them,” said Andy Kirk, the university’s UK Recruitment Officer.


“There are so many options available and it’s really important that students get an opportunity to obtain information on all those on offer”.


The fair takes place in the university’s Engine Shed and will be open from 10am until 2.30pm.
