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.
In accordance with recent government advice, Go Higher West Yorkshire has decided that our physical events and activities scheduled to take place between now and the end of May will be postponed or delivery moved online where possible. We are looking into alternative methods of achieving activity outcomes, more details will be published when they are available.
Whilst we are disappointed to be postponing physical events, the welfare of students, staff and educational professionals is our top priority. In the meantime, we are keen to provide additional support wherever possible and we have a large number of online resources for students, educational staff and parents/carers which are available on our website and will be across our social media channels in the near future; please visit Supporting someone into Higher Education to find out more.
The GHWY Team is working from home during this period so please don’t hesitate to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you all stay safe and well during this unusual time.
