Go Higher is a fantastic opportunity which gives you the chance to go to University as a mature student through studying different modules such as Philosophy, History, English and a wide variety of other subjects. The door is then opened for you to obtain the credits needed to apply for a University place and study the degree of your choice. So why do Go Higher? In following the Go Higher programme you will not only grow in confidence but you will be taught how to write essays, create a group web blog, give presentations, sit examinations and work with fantastic staff and students.The course is run in three stages, and at each stage you will be greatly supported and guided to deliver academically to the University of Liverpool’s standard.
So where has Go Higher enabled me to be in life? Through studying Go Higher I now have a place at the Philosophy Department and will be starting my degree this September 2014.
The other fantastic students who I have had the privilige to work with – and myself – will be having a celebratory evening this coming Thursday 3rd July at the Victoria Gallery Museum and the sense of pride because of completing Go Higher – well, it’s something I would definitely recommend!
We also have our first conference to look forward to on the 23rd July and a Philosophy Oxford Style debate at Liverpool One’s pop up shop. This course has so many opportunities and opens a wide variety of doors that, until now, I would never have believed would be open to myself. So I would like to give a huge thank-you to the fantastic staff, mentors and students who have helped me along my educational journey so far.
