Go Higher West Yorkshire is a collaboration of the 12 Higher Education Providers in West Yorkshire. They work together to improve access to Higher Education across West Yorkshire.
They help people make informed choices about whether Higher Education is right for them.
The OfS Uni Connect Programme is a project run by Go Higher West Yorkshire. Uni Connect brings together 29 partnerships of universities, colleges and other local partners to deliver outreach programmes to young people aged 14-19.
The programme supports government goals to:
- Double the proportion of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in Higher Education (HE) by 2020
- Increase by 20% the number of students from ethnic minority groups in HE
- Address the under-representation of young men from disadvantaged background in HE
