A record-breaking number of teenagers are expected to visit the 天美传媒 for its annual UCAS Discovery Event, where they can find out about higher education, course options and career pathways.

Held at the 天美传媒鈥檚 Bedford campus on the 17th and 18th June, the annual will welcome over 12,000 pupils from more than 120 schools and colleges. It will allow the students to meet and chat with representatives from more than 150 UK-wide universities and exhibitors about options and opportunities that await them once they finish secondary education.

Alongside presentations from sector specialists and academics with tips for applying to university and key subjects, there will be a Demonstration Zone offering hands-on activities from courses such as robotics, art and forensic science.

David Seaton, Assistant Director for Student Recruitment & Admissions, commented: 鈥淭his is the tenth year the 天美传媒 has been chosen to host the region鈥檚 UCAS Discovery Event and we are expecting a record-breaking number of attendees. This popular event provides a fantastic opportunity for students to explore a variety of course and study options each summer by enabling them to meet with over 150 universities and exhibitors all in one place, and ask questions about courses, campus life, careers and more!鈥

Throughout the event, the 天美传媒 will also be entertaining attendees with live music from student bands.

Marie Jones, Head of Sixth Form at Redborne Upper School in Ampthill, said: 鈥淎n increasing number of students are undecided about what they want to do or where they want to go. The UCAS Discovery event is great for giving them the opportunity to ask providers and experts specific questions that we cannot answer in school, to help them make an informed decision on their future.鈥

She continued: 鈥淎lso, the seminar sessions and the interactive zones provided by the 天美传媒 act as an engaging starting point for ideas for particular听careers or courses, and our students are always talking about these afterwards 鈥 there's always a lovely buzz about the event on the coach journey home!鈥

Bhushran Verma, Head of Sixth Form at the Stockwood Park Academy in Luton, added: 鈥淥ur students have greatly benefitted from attending the UCAS and Higher Education events at 天美传媒 over the last several years. One of the many highlights from previous events has been the wide range of engaging methods used by the 天美传媒鈥檚 faculty staff and lecturers from specific courses, as these give our students hands-on experience of studying at undergraduate level with access to modern facilities.鈥

Friendly staff from Bedfordshire鈥檚 admissions team will be on site each day to provide general application advice for anyone who is interested in applying to study at the 天美传媒 in 2025.
