The annual Birkbeck International Digest 2020-21, which showcases the College’s world-class research, teaching and global citizenship achievements, as well as the international activities of staff, students and alumni has been published.  

This year’s edition covers six main themes: international students and their learning experience; research contributions, accolades and dissemination; global citizenship activities; international collaborations; international events and visitors; and international alumni. 

The Digest includes perspectives from international students; in-person and virtual social, cultural, and networking events activities during the year; and major research contributions, accolades, and international presentations by Birkbeck staff. Global citizenship activities, research and academic links with international partners, international events hosted by Birkbeck staff, and alumni achievements at the global stage are also reflected.  

The new Digest will be shared with prospective and current international students, alumni, staff, partners and other external and international stakeholders to enhance Birkbeck’s profile further and support international recruitment and conversion activities. 

Professor David Latchman commented: “I am pleased to welcome this second edition of Birkbeck International Digest which reflects our continuing impact on the world and the outstanding extra-curricular experiences we offer to international students. I look forward to the effective dissemination of the International Digest to key target audiences.”  

Professor Kevin Ibeh, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International) adds: “I heartily appreciate the many colleagues, students and alumni whose achievements and activities are covered in this International Digest. These contributions are particularly remarkable given the persisting COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to sustaining the tradition chronicled in this Digest and to welcoming new and returning international students and colleagues to the 2021-22 academic year.”
