Our corporate partners

Our corporate partners make a significant contribution to the life of Birkbeck. They sponsor, support and promote our research and they also support students who might not otherwise access higher education. 

How our corporate partners help us

These are just some of the ways in which our partners are currently helping us. 

Allen and Overy: helping asylum seekers

ArcelorMittal: investing in science

Ede and Ravenscroft: uncovering our history

  • Ede and Ravenscroft have supported Birkbeck for over 100 years, by sponsoring prizes for School of Law students, and now by supporting an archivist to categorise the College’s archives in preparation for the College’s 200th anniversary in 2023. 

Good Energy: looking at a renewable future

  • Good Energy is funding a PhD studentship to explore the implications of failing to invest in renewable energy technology, given the rising global energy demand. 
  • The studentship will cover the cost of tuition fees for Home/EU students, provides a maintenance grant for four years and includes support for research costs, fieldwork and attending conferences.

JP Morgan: supporting technical development

  • JP Morgan has funded the UpScale Programme, which organises workshops, events, skills training, one-on-one support and job opportunities, to help our students improve their employability and, ultimately, secure a job.

  • A conference in spring 2017 is seeking to energise young people into pursuing a career in mathematics.
