Founded in 1999, our mission is to make higher education achievable for everyone, regardless of age or previous qualifications. Our part-time access diploma has seen more than 1,000 students successfully complete the course, with many going on to study at degree-level, and some continuing to receive PhDs, resulting in a varied and diverse Go Higher alumni community.
To celebrate this important milestone, there will be a number of events throughout the academic year.
On Friday 1st November, we welcome BBC Radio 4’s popular topical debate programme which will be broadcast here at University of Liverpool. If you would like to be a member of the audience, you can reserve your ticket or tune in at 20:02 on Friday 1st November to listen to the discussion.
We will be hosting the annual Universities Association for Lifelong Learning conference on 1 – 3 April 2020. The conference will focus on four key topics: engaging, teaching and retaining lifelong learners; work-based and work-related learning; widening participation and mature students; and learning, maturity and motivation.
Tickets will be available soon. Please email GoHigher@liverpool.ac.uk for any queries.
Every year in July, we celebrate the hard work and achievements of our cohort. This year we will also celebrate our 20-year anniversary as part of our graduation ceremony. We will be announcing more details closer to the event.
