Science at Birkbeck: world leading research

From using innovative computer programmes to discover how babies learn to investigating coastal erosion, our staff are engaged in groundbreaking, internationally recognised work.

Flexible study

Birkbeck supports the needs of students who are juggling daytime work or other commitments with evening study. Most of our students study part-time in the evenings, but you can also study with us full-time.

These free events, held throughout the year, provide the perfect opportunity for you to ask questions about our courses in Biological Sciences, Psychological Sciences, or Earth and Planetary Sciences.
