Bridges to Birkbeck

With our two campuses in Bloomsbury and Stratford, Birkbeck is committed to working with communities across London to raise aspirations, awareness of and ability to undertake university study. Working with Local Authorities to reach these communities is critical to achieving this. Bridges to Birkbeck is a collaborative venture developed to target key London boroughs, in order to identify and deliver activities based on the needs of the community. 

If you are interested in hosting Bridges to Birkbeck activities in your borough, to support the regeneration or promotion of higher education, please .

About the programme

We are currently working with Haringey, Camden and Newham councils to deliver meaningful activities such as lectures, advice sessions, application workshops, academic preparation, and careers and employability support. The aim is to enable local residents to make the most of the economic and social changes happening around them through development and learning opportunities, facilitated through Bridges to Birkbeck and delivered by the relevant academic and support teams at Birkbeck.
