Making the Most of College Day

Getting ready to attend College Day? The key to success is to prepare well. See our tips below for before, during and after the event.


  • Research schools that will be at USA College Day using our university search. You can find the perfect match by refining your search by available majors, campus setting, types of funding, and other details important to you. Visit university websites and take notes to show you have done your research.
  • Look out for a range of universities in the event programme. Well-known universities can be amongst the most competitive, with acceptance rates of less than 10%. There is a great variety of excellent universities at College Day that could be a perfect fit, so don't let yourself get hung up on just one or two.
  • Plan some key stands you want to visit using the floor plan. Take a minute beforehand to locate the stands for Fulbright, the Sutton Trust US Programme and the U.S. Embassy in London so we can help you find answers to your questions about US study, visas and living abroad.
