The University of Lincoln prepares to receive over 3,000 school and college students at the Lincolnshire Higher Education fair.

The university’s Brayford campus will host the Lincolnshire UCAS (Universities and colleges Admissions Service) HE Convention on Tuesday 16 June 2009.

Guests get the chance to talk to academics and students about issues such as student’s finances and the UCAS application process.

The convention has been organized with the support of the Lincolnshire County Council and UCAS. The day takes place from 10am-2pm at the Engine Shed and Performing Arts Centre (LPAC) on the Brayford campus.

Academics will give an overview of courses such as law, business, journalism and forensic science. Lincoln Students will also give an insight into university life and the benefits of a gap year before starting university.

Around 100 British higher education institutions will provide delegates to attend the convention and present the choices available to sixth-form, college and mature students.

Karen Raynes, Senior Student Recruitment Officer at the University of Lincoln, said: “The UCAS HE Convention brings universities from across the country together in one place.

‘It makes it the most straightforward way for students, teachers and parents to find out more about higher education, whether it’s choosing the right university, finding the best course or accessing financial support.

‘The event is not just open to school and college parties either – members of the public are welcome to come along on the day too.”
