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.
Over 500 works of contemporary art, animation, illustration, graphic design, fashion, textiles, creative advertising and photography will be digitally displayed as part of Leeds Arts University’s undergraduate degree show.
‘Leeds Arts University Show 2020’, which marks the culmination of three years’ studio-focused creative study by final-year undergraduate students, will be launched on Wednesday, 1 July and will run until Wednesday, 30 September 2020.
The show will feature work from across ten undergraduate courses, including Visual Communication and Fashion Photography. Students are given industry access throughout their courses, enabling many to contribute to the arts and cultural sector after graduation.
The annual show is being held online for the very first time as a result of lockdown, with students completing their studies at home.
