Support for working-class students

A monthly webinar & podcast series exploring the challenges that students from working-class backgrounds are facing during the pandemic.

If you’re a working-class student, you may have experienced some unique difficulties this year. This might include challenges with fitting in or having to code-switch, managing your mental health or navigating the intersectionality between race and class.

That’s why we’ve partnered with RECLAIM to deliver a programme of webinars and podcasts to support students from working class backgrounds. RECLAIM is a charity that supports and amplifies the voices of working-class young people.

Webinar series

Our webinar series will explore the challenges that working-class students have faced during the pandemic.

Each webinar will be based on a specific theme of working- class student experiences. They will include:

  • Contributions from present and former students
  • Tips and advice for overcoming challenges related to working class student life
  • Opportunities to take part in Q&As and discussion


Our forthcoming podcast will explore similar themes of working-class student experiences in depth, including:

  • Mental health
  • Race and class
  • Finances at university
