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.
HEART exists because of the desire of our twelve partner colleges and universities to work collaboratively with one another and with both schools and businesses in order to support individual, organisational and regional development.
Our partners are committed to offering the best possible value for money and support for business and this has just been taken to the next level by the University of Huddersfield. They have become the first University to put their money (£100,000) where their mouth is and invest in small businesses via Funding Circle, the UK’s largest online marketplace where people lend directly to small businesses.
All interest earned from the investment will be put towards student scholarships for the University’s ‘Enterprise Development’ degree. Over the next five years, it is anticipated that this could benefit more than 200 talented students from socially-deprived backgrounds.
