About Birkbeck, University of London

Founded in 1823, Birkbeck is recognised as one of the world’s leading universities for excellence in research and teaching. The Times Higher Education World University rankings 2016-17 place Birkbeck among the world’s top 250 universities and over 90 per cent of our academics are research-active, which means that your teaching is based on the very latest research.

An increasing number of school leavers and college students are choosing to study in the evening at Birkbeck so they can get ahead in a competitive job market, by gaining workplace experience while they study, rather than waiting until they graduate.

Evening study gives you the freedom to plan your day as you wish: our students use their daytimes to work, volunteer, intern or study.
