Go Higher West Yorkshire is a partnership of 13 local higher education providers with the mission to reduce inequalities in higher education access, success and progression.
We recognise the value and potential care leavers have to progress into higher education. We also understand the challenges that young people face when they leave the care system and begin to live independently. We are therefore committed to giving care experienced young people the best opportunity to progress economically and educationally.
This project will introduce you to some academic research skills, facilitating you to explore a topic which is of importance or interest to you. Over a four week period you will be guided through four key stages of research:
Many higher education courses ask students to complete their own research project, from Business to History to Childhood Studies. Our Summer Project gives you a small taste for what studying in higher education might be like. Whether you later choose to enter higher education or not, we hope you enjoy this project and we look forward to seeing everything you find out as part of your research!
