Getting to know top UK universities at Kings Brighton's annual University Fair
Kings Brighton recently held its annual University Fair providing officials from over 20 UK higher education institutions.
The event was exclusively open to students across Kings Brighton, Oxford, London and Bournemouth, giving them the opportunity to gain one-to-one support with their application process and gain instant responses regarding any queries they had. Although online research is very supportive, the type of information received at the University Fair can add to the students’ decision-making. Kingston University stated, “It’s a great way to meet potential students and see what they are passionate about. Meeting students face to face in a day and age where everything is digital, is a great experience”.
In our interview below, we chat to some of the Universities and students that attended the fair.
