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.
In November, we welcomed BBC Radio 4’s popular topical debate programme, which was broadcast here live from University of Liverpool. The panellists were Iain Dale, John Healey MP, Nicola Horlick, and Gillian Keegan MP. You can listen to the broadcast on BBC Sounds.
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.
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.
