This article features Liverpool University's Go Higher, a one-year programme for adults who want to return to part-time education with a view to going on a degree course. For 10 years, Go Higher programme has been helping adults with few or no formal qualifications gain access to university-level study. The standards of learning and teaching on the course are uncompromising--proving, for some, a springboard to postgraduate study--but the only criteria for entry are enthusiasm and a desire to learn.
