Development and Alumni

Birkbeck is generously supported by our former students, our corporate partners and also by charitable trusts and foundations.

The Development and Alumni (D&A) department manages these relationships, ensuring that this support has the maximum possible impact for the college and that such supporters are recognised for their generosity.

Often this support is financial: to support bursaries, scholarships, staff posts, the College’s estate or our academics’ research. However, we also receive incredible support via our networks offering their expertise, networks and volunteering their time.
