STUDENTS learned that the world is their oyster at a higher education fair in Havant.

Havant College hosted 55 higher education institutions, which set up stands to let young people know what opportunities are out there.

The teenagers were also able to choose from 50 different talks.

These included presentations about Oxbridge, student finance, and studying abroad.

It was the 15th time the higher education fair has been held at the college.

The event was sponsored by Southampton Solent University, The College of Law and MTGY (Mind The Gap Year).

Melanie Lycett-King, careers guidance and student liaison officer, said: ‘Once again we were very fortunate to have so many universities and gap year organisations support us and give our students the benefits of their knowledge and expertise, not only on the stands, but as part of our seminar programme. The students really value this opportunity.’
