Come and meet the British Council and many of the UK's universities face-to-face. We organize regular events in more than 40 countries where you can find out more about the unique study opportunities and UK experience you will gain.

Staff from every type of university are in attendance and there are specialist information sessions, so there will be something to help your research no matter what your interests are. Whether you're an undergraduate, postgraduate, research candidate or a parent of someone interested in UK higher education, you'll benefit from individual, personalized advice.

In addition to meeting exhibitors, you'll also have the opportunity to attend seminars and presentations delivered by distinguished academics, university representatives, our own education counsellors and other specialists such as UCAS.

These events are designed to give you all the information you need to understand the application process and make the right choice for you.

Admission is usually free. It’s best to register online to avoid delays and to make sure you have all the information to make the most of the event.
