With the versatility and power of the VLT telescopes European astronomers are now set to take the study of the high redshift universe to new frontiers. Despite spectacular progress in the last few years in identifying normal galaxies at large look-back times, we have not yet isolated the epoch when the first stars formed and the universe was re-ionised. Even a z = 3, where galaxies have now been catalogued in their hundreds, detailed studies of their stellar populations await the availability of suitable instrumentation, such as ISAAC. In this article we review recent progress in the study of galaxies at high redshifts, focusing in particular on results which point the way for future work with the VLT.
