Congratulations and welcome to Birkbeck.

Once your offer is confirmed, you will receive an invitation to a programme induction event and to the Birkbeck Orientation Day. We encourage you to attend both events, to get the best overview of life at Birkbeck and ensure that you’re ready for the start of term.

  • Most programme inductions will take place 23-27 September.
  • Birkbeck Orientation Day will take place on Saturday 28 September. It will include the Birkbeck Careers Fair, the Students’ Union Freshers’ Fair, study skills support and networking.

We also have some pre-entry events and online resources to help you learn the necessary study skills for university.
