If you are applying from the UK, there's lots of ways you can find out more information.
We organise many events to help you make the right decision when choosing a university or college. The more you can find out about individual courses and places to study, the more prepared you will be when you get there. Our conventions and subject-specific exhibitions let you speak to representatives from universities and colleges who can help you decide what and where to study. Many events also have seminar programmes, which cover topics such as grants and loans, taking a year out, how to fill in your UCAS application and entry to competitive subjects. More about UCAS events
Another good way to meet representatives from universities and colleges, often including current students, is on open days. Open days give you the opportunity to really get a feel for a place. More about open days
