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.
Leeds Trinity University is pleased to confirm that it will be seeking to obtain full University status, following the government’s announcement that the qualifying threshold for university title will be lowered from 4,000 to 1,000 students. The institution will be consulting widely on its proposed new title, Leeds Trinity University.
Leeds Trinity, which has over 3000 students, has been able to award its own degrees since 2009 and is a recognised provider of high quality university education.
Professor Freda Bridge, Principal and Chief Executive of Leeds Trinity University, said: “This is a very welcome development. It will reduce confusion and further recognise our exceptional achievements in preparing graduates for the world of work with high quality professionally focused degrees.”
