Birkbeck is different: nearly all of our classes are taught between 6pm and 9pm on weekday evenings, so your days are free to work, study or do your own thing. We are proud to have a global reputation for high-quality teaching and research, with a vibrant, intellectually challenging research culture across multiple disciplines.   

This academic year is different because of COVID-19, but we have not compromised our academic standards, nor the quality of our learning opportunities. Whether you’re looking to transform your career, earn a promotion, learn new skills or just study something you love, check out our range of courses starting in January 2021.

Birkbeck's students come from over 100 different countries and all contribute to a vibrant community.  Read more about our teaching arrangements on our coronavirus information page
