Third successful Admissions Fair for Access to
HE students

Access to HE Admissions Fair 2015

The third annual QAA Access to HE Admissions Fair took place on 15 October 2015 at Central Hall Westminster, London. Over 400 Access to HE students attended the event, which provided the opportunity to meet representatives from 31 higher education providers and talk to admissions tutors and students. A range of workshops were also on offer, on topics including the application process and funding arrangements.

Higher education providers at the Admissions Fair said it was a 'great way to speak to and advise Access students', and that the event was 'not only useful but essential'. In particular, exhibitors emphasised the importance of the Fair for providing Access students with tailored advice in response to their often very specific questions.

Students also responded positively to the event, reporting that it was well organised and a great opportunity to find out more information about courses and providers. After attending the Fair, many felt more confident about finding a suitable higher education course and had a better understanding of what they needed to do to apply.  

QAA would like to thank all those who attended and exhibited at the 2015 Access to HE Admissions Fair and we look forward to hosting more events in 2016.
