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.
Earlier this year the HEART Partnership decided to change their name to Go Higher West Yorkshire. We are now inviting students from our twelve partner institutions to design the Go Higher West Yorkshire Logo.
The brief is to design a unique logo/visual symbol together with a suggested type style and type face suitable for use in a variety of media and applications. The new logo will need to work online, in print (in different sizes) and on other collateral pieces including exhibition boards, social media, advertisements and merchandise.
There will be two prizes awarded; first prize £250 in ‘Compliments’ Vouchers, and a runner-up prize of £125 in ‘Compliments’ Vouchers. Selection of the winners will be undertaken by an executive panel.
The best entries will be uploaded on to our website.
