We know how important study is to you. That's why, at Birkbeck, we offer two discounts.

10% discount for union members

  • If you are a member of a union that is recognised by the Trades Union Congress (TUC), you can claim 10% off all accredited Birkbeck courses (certificates, undergraduate and postgraduate).
  • When you complete our online enrolment (which you will be asked to do once you have been offered a place on a course), you will be asked if you want to take advantage of the Union Learn discount. You will then be given 28 days to provide proof of your eligibility for this discount. (Download a copy of the UnionLearn verification letter.)
  • The discount must be claimed at the point of enrolment. Claims cannot be made retrospectively.

10% fees discount for Birkbeck alumni

We offer a 10% discount on tuition fees to all Birkbeck alumni who have completed an undergraduate degree and are enrolling on any master's degree (MA, MSc, LLM and MRes), starting in the autumn.

When you complete our online enrolment, you will be asked if you want to take advantage of the alumni discount. No additional proof should be required, since we will already have a record of you having completed an honours degree with us.

Please note: the Union discount and alumni discount are mutually exclusive - if you are eligible for the alumni discount, you will not be eligible to claim the union discount.
