Event description

Description

Please note: You will only need to attend one Compass Project Taster Day (either 12th April or 15th May). You can find more information about the Compass Project Fund here. If you are unable to attend a Taster Day - please contact Naureen Abubacker, to Compass Project coordinator in advance on thecompassproject@bbk.ac.uk.

If you have sought sanctuary in the UK, currently have refugee, asylum seeker, DLR or Humanitarian Protection status and are looking for some support and guidance on accessing higher education, we invite you to attend our taster day at Birkbeck, University of London.

Birkbeck has a proud tradition of changing lives through university study. Our students come from all over the world, with a wide range of educational and professional backgrounds. We particularly encourage and specialise in applications from mature learners, those who may have had a break in their education, of any length, or who have never had the opportunity to study at university level either in the UK or abroad.

During the taster day we will cover the following:

  • Studying at Birkbeck, courses and entry requirements

  • Academic readiness: Exploring the skills you need before starting a university degree

  • A taster session with a Birkbeck academic

  • The Compass Project Fund: Eligibility criteria, application and next steps

Throughout the day, there will be an opportunity to speak to Compass Project recipients, advisors and academics at Birkbeck.
