UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) co-ordinate the delivery of around 50 Higher Education Exhibitions each year. The events provide learners with the opportunity to explore their future choices, and talk to representatives from Higher and Further Education institutions, charities, graduate recruiters, gap year companies and commercial organisations. Many of the Exhibitions also have seminars to help the learners with making an application, finances or course choices.

Locally, the Staffordshire UCAS Exhibition is hosted at the Stoke-on-Trent Campus of Staffordshire University. All schools and colleges within Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire are invited to bring Year 12 students to the one day event, which includes an extensive seminar programme.
