UCAS: supporting students with all their options

 

Last week saw the deadline for this year’s prospective students to submit their university or college applications, with many choosing higher or degree apprenticeships as an option.

UCAS is already supporting 2020’s students, whatever their destination, and apprenticeships are high on the agenda.

UCAS has made a commitment to raising students’ awareness of all education and progression routes.  At their larger exhibitions, which are at the start of the journey for thousands of students, they now have dedicated apprenticeship areas.

Almost a third of students considering an undergraduate course told UCAS they are also looking at apprenticeships. At their flagship events in Manchester, London, Bristol, and Birmingham, visited by over 40,000 prospective students, they’ve made this a real focus. In past years, they’ve been able to give exhibitors like Rolls Royce, Google, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Novus Trust, and Ernst and Young, the perfect opportunity to speak to students, face-to-face, at network exhibitions across the country.

Sander Kristel, Executive Director of UCAS Media says: ’We recognise that apprenticeships are a real option for students, and, while many in business might not realise, UCAS provides information and advice on both routes. By giving students a real opportunity to compare the benefits at our exhibitions – and invaluable face-to-face contact – we’re able to ensure they are fully informed, and in control of their future.’
