If you are a new degree student, you will need to register with the College in accordance with the requirements of the University of London. (If you have already completed part of your course, you don't need to register again, but you will need to enrol and make arrangements to pay your fees at the start of each academic year.
Specific details of the documents you are required to submit to complete registration are given in your formal offer letter, but for reference, we have included our general documentation guidelines below.
If you have not already completed registration, you must submit the appropriate documentation either by post to the Registry or in person to the My Birkbeck Student Centre no later than 31 October. (Please inform the admissions team in writing if for any reason you are unable to complete registration by this date.)
This includes: BA, BSc, LLB, GradCert, GradDip (except Graduate Diplomas in the Department of Economics - see the column to the right), Foundation Degree, DipHE, CertHE and Certificate of Continuing Education
This includes: MA, MSc, MRes, LLM and Graduate Diplomas in the Department of Economics
Postgraduate students are required to provide documentary evidence of qualifications and the standard attained:
Please be aware that your enrolment may be jeopardised if you do not complete these registration formalities.
If for any reason the registration documents submitted do not fulfil this condition, your registration will be terminated, and you will have to withdraw from the College.
In addition, we may suspend you or terminate your registration, if you are in debt either to Birkbeck or the wider University of London. This means that you will no longer be entitled to attend lectures, use the Library, access any College facilities or sit exams.
Registration will be reinstated once you contact the admissions team and make satisfactory arrangements to clear the outstanding fees. It then takes at least 24 hours to reinstate access rights to College systems, including the Library.
