How does it work?
Birkbeck is affiliated with some of the UK’s leading high-street and online brands, including Amazon and Waterstone’s. Every time you shop, all you need to do is visit our affiliate links, click on the retailer you want and shop as you normally would. The retailer will then donate a percentage of the amount you spend to Birkbeck’s Alumni Fund which is used to provide students with improved teaching facilities and bursaries for study. It’s as simple as that so please tell your friends, hop online and help us spread the word!
