On Track: summer school 2023

On Track is Birkbeck's free summer programme for all new undergraduate students. The programme is designed to help prepare students for life as an undergraduate at Birkbeck and is a fantastic opportunity to get to know the university, our staff and our students before starting your course. 

On Track is an intensive and engaging programme that will run across two days in July and will include a combination of social activities, workshops, advice sessions and academic experiences.

As an On Track student, you will:

  • make new friends with other students who will be starting at Birkbeck the same time as you
  • get to know your beautiful new campus
  • hear from support services available at Birkbeck, such as Student Advice, Careers, Wellbeing, Disability and Dyslexia support
  • chat with current students at Birkbeck
  • attend advice sessions on managing your time, balancing work and study, improving your study skills
  • meet academics from your department who will be teaching on your course
  • hear from your Birkbeck Student Union and find out about our clubs and societies
  • learn about the library and its resources (On Track students have access to the Birkbeck library throughout the summer).
