Bloomsbury Spring Programme 2018

Run in partnership with Anglo Educational Services (AES), a leading provider of education abroad programmes, the Birbeck London Semester Programme is based at the heart of academic London in Bloomsbury. We offer modules across the humanities, social sciences, business and communication and you will be taught by academics who are researching at the cutting-edge of their fields. 

The spring programme is 14 weeks long and courses run for three hours each in the daytime. Courses can be taken in tandem with a work placement of up to two-and-a-half days a week (see below). The courses are assessed by a combination of coursework and exams. 

Work placement opportunities

Our work placements involve a work assignment of up to two-and-a-half days a week. Placements are available in a wide range of fields, but some of the most common placements are in arts management, business, media and communications, and politics. Past students have had placements at top US companies, Parliament, British financial institutions, fashion designers, theatres and concert halls and prestigious media outlets. 

In addition, you will take a tutorial course and prepare a related academic research project. The work placement replaces one module of the spring programme.
