We are here to help students access and prepare for Higher Education in West Yorkshire.
Here you’ll find events such as open days, help choosing a course, and tips on application writing. We also provide advice on student finance, living away from home and insight into what to expect from Higher Education.
Don’t think that Higher Education is for you? Read our Myth Buster guide to clear up any misconceptions about further study.
The role of teachers, advisors, parents, carers and guardians is crucial in supporting students and potential students to access Higher Education. Whether supporting someone by raising attainment, helping them to make informed choices, or by providing practical information and guidance, Go Higher West Yorkshire can help.
We’ve compiled a list of resources, including lesson plans, videos, links to useful websites, quizzes and other activities, to help support learners’ attainment and aspirations, inform their choices about courses and careers, and to guide them through the application process and other practical issues on their journey to Higher Education.
If you would like to arrange a visit to your school, or require information about an event, contact the Go Higher West Yorkshire team.
The journey started in schools, colleges and universities, doesn’t end at graduation.
Exposure to the world of work is key to developing employability skills and securing a job.
That’s why we work collaboratively with employers and industry experts, supporting our partners to equip their students for the changing economy.
With twelve exceptional partners we are always keen to promote achievements and particularly so when they involve national recognition.
On 29 November 2012 the University of Huddersfield were present at The Times Higher Education awards hosted by David Walliams at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. They had made the shortlist in two categories, Outstanding ICT Initiative of the Year (which went to Southampton University) and the prestigious Entrepreneurial University of the Year category.
In these difficult economic times it is testimony to the excellent work being carried out by all HEART partners to support the economy that this prestigious award was picked up by a West Yorkshire institution.
Congratulations to the University of Huddersfield on this wonderful achievement. For more information on the awards click here.
