Birkbeck is different: classes are held in the evening so you can work, volunteer or do your own thing during the day.

Record numbers of students are doing just that and using their evenings to transform their lives.

We are proud of being one of the world’s top research universities and part of the prestigious University of London, but what makes us really special is our unique evening teaching and the opportunities this provides to combine study with work and other commitments.

This focused way of learning attracts a special type of student: someone dedicated to their studies and determined to improve themselves.

That’s why studying at Birkbeck is both intense and enjoyable – and why it transforms people’s lives.
