Birkbeck's connection to London explored through the latest edition of BBK
The marriage between Birkbeck and London is strong and successful. In good times and in bad, from boom time to wartime, the College and the capital have remained loyal to each other and have thrived.
2014 was no exception, as our staff, students and alumni worked with organisations and individuals across the metropolis to support George Birkbeck’s ideals and advance evening higher education for busy Londoners. For these reasons, and because 85% of our students are Londoners, it seems appropriate to dedicate this issue of BBK to London – Birkbeck’s home, one of our greatest assets, and one of the greatest cities in the world.
Our connections with the history and future of London life resonate throughout these pages.
