Whether you are a fresher about to embark on University education for the first time, or a student returning to Uni after the long summer break, Students Live 2012 will have something for you…
Students Live 2012 (www.studentslive.co.uk) takes place at the Olympia National Hall exhibition centre in London from 7th to 8th September and will bring new and returning university students much needed advice and guidance, discounts and competitions – along with live music, celebrities, gaming, fashion and much more. Who said preparing for uni shouldn’t be fun too? Tickets will be £4 on the door, but entrance to the show will be completely FREE if you pre-book!
Helping to prepare students for university life, exhibitors at Students Live 2012 include Books for Dummies, Camp America, Choice FM, Fitness First, Ministry of Sound, National Union of Students, O2, Shelter, South Australia Tourism, Sunglass Hut, Tate Galleries and Voi Jeans. The show organisers UCAS Media have improved this year’s exhibition by introducing exhibitor zones, performance areas and a food hall. Guest speakers will also be presenting topics on finance, accommodation, part-time work, travel and making the most of your university experience.
“This really is a unique opportunity for brands to engage with new university students before term starts,” says Jo Redfern, UCAS commercial director. “We’re expecting over 10,000 students to come through the doors and they’ll all be looking for the best deals.”
