Event description

If you decide you would like to apply for any of our undergraduate degree courses we will be on hand to help you with the next steps.

Come along to our Get Started workshop where we will outline fees and funding, provide practical tips on writing an application and explain what will be expected of you as a Birkbeck student.

This interactive workshop will be broken down into three sections:

a) Student finance, funding and loans - By the end of the session you will know which loans and financial support you may be eligible for and how to apply for it, as well as being comfortable with the finer details of the repayment process. We will also clearly explain Birkbeck's non repayable financial support packages for those students most in need. 

b) Making an Application to Birkbeck - We understand that the application process can seem daunting. We will give you an overview of what Birkbeck expects from an application, and will include practical writing exercises to help you demonstrate your experience and commitment. While we can’t guarantee that your application will be successful, we can give you the knowledge and support you need to write a clear and engaging application.

c) Preparing to Study – We will explore the benefits of returning to study, identify what may be possible challenges and find realistic solutions to ensure you make the most of every opportunity.  We will discuss what will be expected of you as a student, and give you information about Birkbeck student support services including study skills and disability support. By the end of the workshop you will be able to put the necessary plans in place to ensure you hit the ground running when you start your course.

These free sessions are intended for applications for undergraduate degree courses only, not for postgraduate degrees. Please note that these events are not subject specific.


There will be a short break at the end of every workshop.
