UCAS Events

Interested in finding out what creative degree study is like at a specialist, independent art school?

Come meet us at one of the many UCAS exhibitions and events that take place throughout the year and across the country! 

Our friendly and helpful grad team will be hitting the road throughout the year to deliver first-hand advice about our creative programmes, what it's like studying at the college, and life in Plymouth.

What is a UCAS event?

Every year, over a quarter of a million students, parents, guardians and advisers visit UCAS exhibitions and events across the country. They’re a chance for budding undergrads to get an insight into life after exams – whether that means university, volunteer work, a gap year or career opportunities. It's a great opportunity to ask burning questions about what the future may hold, gather information and get inspired. And best of all – they’re completely free to attend.

It's a chance for you to find out everything about higher education and degree study, where institutions from all over the country will be there to meet you. Meet our grads, find out about our range of creative study, and get an insight into life at a creative art school in a buzzing city by the sea.

Where can I attend?

UCAS exhibitions and events take place all across the UK – from Devon and Cornwall to Belfast, Manchester, London and beyond. Odds are, wherever you're based, you won't have far to travel to find an event near you. 

They take place throughout the year, usually running from February to June, and all events are listed on the UCAS website here.

We'll also list the date and location of every UCAS exhibition and event we're attending month by month on our calendar.
