UCAS virtual tours

The UCAS virtual tours site brings together virtual tours from many universities across the UK. It is ideal for students to gain an insight into what university life might look like before they narrow down their choices at key stage 5. However, the site can also be used with all key stages to showcase university campuses and the opportunities that exist.
