Virtual University Fair

On Wednesday 20 October we delivered our second Virtual University Fair in partnership with The University Guys.

The Fair brought together 86 UK and international universities with students, families and staff from COBIS schools on a virtual platform for an interactive experience. During the Fair, attendees had the opportunity to browse the virtual booths of all attending universities and speak to their representatives through live text, audio or video chat. They also had the chance to tune into themed sessions to help them explore, prepare for and apply to university.  You can view the programme here.

To access the session recordings , please contact Please note, recordings are only available for COBIS member and applicant schools.


Attending UK universities included Imperial, Bath, Bristol, Durham, St Andrew's, Surrey and more. A large selection of international universities also attended, such as Queen's (Canada), Leiden (The Netherlands), Bocconi (Italy) and Loyola Marymount (United States).
