The Access and Engagement Department sits at the heart of Birkbeck’s commitment to improving the access and success of non-traditional students in London. We work with groups who may otherwise feel excluded from taking a step into higher education, including trade union members without a formal qualification above level 4; FE and adult education college students; forced migrants and those who have been out of education for a number of years.
Birkbeck’s academic and research community can support our work in a range of ways, including:
- delivering free community lectures and/or learning activities;
- running workshops to support those facing organisational change at work;
- helping people to develop the skills they need to successfully navigate structural inequality;
- offering insights into community priorities through their research.
Find out more
To find out more and discuss possible collaborations, the Department is holding an Academic Open House event on Thursday 26th September from 3-5pm in Malet Street B02. The event is open to PhD candidates, Early Career Researchers and academics at Birkbeck. We will present further information about our work across London and our priorities for 2019/20, and there will be the opportunity for discussion with other academic colleagues and members of the Department.
