Design Your FutureReturning for the 12th year, UCAS present Design Your Future at London's ExCeL. With more and more course options becoming available it can prove difficult for future students to consider their options and the occupation that they would like to work towards. Within the art and design industry alone there are an extensive amount of career avenues that may be of interest to study.
Design Your Future is an exhibition that aims to provide people interested in studying creative subjects with the necessary information needed when choosing a course in higher education. With exhibitions, seminars and workshops all focussing on areas such as fashion, media, 3D animation and architecture the event will have everything needed to help assist in narrowing down difficult choices. There will also be the chance to talk with representatives from universities and colleges to ask any questions future students may have about their options. 

Located at the ExCeL, the event will be close to Greenwich and, multi-purpose music venue, the O2 Arena. To find the best hotel deals close to the event, have a look at our Nearby Hotels page.
