We will be exhibiting at the 24th UCAS Annual Admissions Conference, being held in Newport, South Wales.

The theme of this year’s conference will look into collaboration and change. The programme has been developed with admissions colleagues, to ensure interactive sessions, and increased input from higher education providers. The conference will also have a line-up of activities scheduled throughout the three days, there we will be plenary sessions discussing the conference themes, business sessions which will have an overview of the confirmation and clearing process, and a range of topical and interactive breakout sessions, which are led by colleagues from across the sector.

Across the Group we work closely with the Higher Education sector to ensure the qualifications of our awarding bodies design, develop and manage meet the needs of our learners, the institutions they want to apply for and the career paths they want to follow. The work of the Group supports our awarding bodies through extensive education and assessment. This year Cambridge Assessment will be represented by all four of our awarding bodies, Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing, Cambridge Assessment English, Cambridge Assessment International Education and OCR. You find out more about their qualifications at stands 1 to 4.

The conference has an exciting line-up of keynote speakers and workshop speakers delivering invaluable information to assist with the students’ progression routes in the Higher Education. We look forward to hearing from colleagues from OCR and Cambridge Assessment deliver a workshop on Applied General qualifications and access to HE - debating external assessment on Wednesday, 28 March at 10:50 (GMT).

More information about the seminar including the full agenda and how to register can be found on the UCAS website.
