UCAS and school/college higher education exhibitions

We meet more than 200,000 aspiring students each year at UCAS and other schools/college higher education events, fairs and conventions – and receive applications from talented students worldwide.

While we can't currently attend these fairs in person, there are a number of ways in which prospective students – as well as parents, teachers and careers advisers – can get in contact with us and get answers to questions about study opportunities at The University of Manchester.

Meet the Russell Group virtual fair

The University will be taking part in the Meet the Russell Group Webinar Series taking place in October 2022. Further details will be added to this page, so please check back for the latest information.

UK University Search

We are exhibiting and presenting at the UK University Search Autumn Fair at Old Trafford Football Club on Wednesday, 28 September 2022.

The event is aimed at students in Years 11, 12 and 13 who would like to find out more information about university and apprenticeships.

This fair will provide attendees with the opportunity to speak to a range of exhibiting universities and apprenticeship providers, including Russell Group, red brick and modern institutions, as well as apprenticeship providers and local colleges.

The fair will feature a wide range of useful seminars such as:
- UCAS Personal Statement and Application Advice.
- Choosing a University Course.
- Student Finance.

The event is completely free of charge to students, parents and teachers.
