Higher Education Fair comes to Lincoln


More than 100 Higher Education institutions from across the UK will be offering advice to prospective students at the Lincolnshire Higher Education Fair, hosted by the University of Lincoln, on Tuesday 17 June.


The event, organised by the University of Lincoln in conjunction with Lincoln County Council and UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service), is open to all students from sixth-forms and colleges in the region.


Students will have the opportunity to speak to representatives from the various institutions, collect prospectuses and attend talks by experts on a range of Higher Education related topics including the subject areas of advertising, law, teaching and design. Also on offer will be general information, impartial advice and talks on the UCAS application process, funding university study and how to get the best out of university life.


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


“There are so many options available that it’s really important for students, and parents, to obtain information on everything on offer so they can choose what’s right for them.”


This is the eighth year running that the University has hosted the event, which has proved extremely popular. More than 3,000 people attended last year.


The fair takes place in the University’s Lincoln Performing Arts Centre and Engine Shed at the Brayford campus in central Lincoln, and opens from 10am until 2.30pm.
