Entry requirements and application information

At Birkbeck, we encourage applications from students without traditional qualifications.

You can apply for most of our short courses without previous study experience. Almost all of our short courses also comprise parts of qualifications, such as our modular Certificates of Higher Education.

Where entry requirements or tests do apply, you will find the relevant information in the course descriptions (always under the heading 'Entry requirements').

Please note: you must be 18 years of age (or over) at the point of enrolment. And, to benefit fully from your studies, you should be able to read, write and speak English fluently. If you feel that you need to improve your written or oral skills in English, we recommend that you enrol on one of our English language courses.
