PhD LIVE Virtual Study Fairs 2021

Our first PhD LIVE Virtual Study Fair of 2021 took place in February, thank you to those who exhibited!

Our subject-specific events allowed exhibitors to focus their conversations on each date, and allowed academics and the most relevant staff to be present each day.

Exhibitors were able to customise their virtual exhibition booth and provide content, videos and downloadable resources to attendees, as well as speak to prospective students in 1-1 conversations. They also received details of all attendees they spoke to during the fair and all those who visited their virtual booth, giving them a list of interested prospective students for easy follow-up.


Our PhD LIVE fairs are dedicated PhD recruitment study fairs, allowing you to promote your PhD opportunities to our targeted student audience who are specifically interested in doctoral education. We were unable to run our physical PhD LIVE fairs in 2020 due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, however hope to return soon with our physical fairs.

In 2019, we ran three PhD LIVE study fairs, in Oxford, Edinburgh and Sheffield, and in partnership with University of Edinburgh, The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.


  • 3,700 UK students registered across the three fairs
  • 1,854 students attended the events across the three locations
  • On average, each exhibitor using our lead capture app recorded 45 connections

  • 95% of exhibitors considered their attendance to be worthwhile
  • 100% of exhibitors rated the student attendance as 'good' or 'excellent'

Great opportunity to promote the university and discuss research
opportunities with students first-hand.
