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.

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.
What’s was HE Week?
In West Yorkshire we’re really lucky – we have 13 Higher Education (HE) institutions right on our doorstep. These include three specialists (a college, a university, and a conservatoire), three University Centres, and a Russell Group university, along with six other top places you can study!
There really is something for everyone, but we understand it can be difficult to know where to start.
HE was Week all about showing you what’s on offer and giving you tips on making decisions, applying to HE, and what to expect throughout the process.
We have live events that you can access, blogs on different subjects, and a virtual HE Fair where you can learn about all the institutions in West Yorkshire.
Hear from students and lecturers, learn about specific subjects, and find out about student life, student finance and how to use UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service).
