With some uncertainty still surrounding large-scale physical events, 18 Scottish education institutions along with Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and SAAS, are hosting a virtual Scottish Education Exhibition for senior phase pupils who are considering their pathways to further and higher education. This free, virtual exhibition takes place on Thursday 9 September 2021 from 10am - 7pm.  

Featuring 14 Scottish universities and four colleges, the Scottish Education Exhibition will give pupils the chance to speak to the universities and colleges, view resources and videos, download prospectuses and join live webinars. SDS and SAAS will also be on hand to provide career information and advice, and funding advice respectively. 

Recognising the key influencing role that parents and carers play, the event will also feature an information session aimed specifically at this group.
