Courses disclaimer

Birkbeck makes all reasonable efforts to deliver the courses of study and all other services and facilities as described on our website. However, please note the following points:

Tuition fee increases

  • Students are charged an annual tuition fee in each year of their programme. Following the first year of study, tuition fees may be subject to annual increases. Fees for Home/EU undergraduate students are regulated by the government and annual fee increases will be made up to the maximum level permissible by government regulation. 
  • In all other circumstances, for the duration of their programme, students may expect tuition fees to increase annually in line with inflation, up to a maximum of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) +3%. 
  • For more information, please see the College Fees Policy

Option modules

  • Any option modules listed are indicative and may change year to year for reasons including staff availability, student demand, and enhancements to programmes as part of ongoing review. 
  • For programmes that are based in Central London, most modules will be delivered in and around Birkbeck's campus on Malet Street in Bloomsbury.

Teaching staff

  • Any named staff listed as teaching on a programme are subject to change and dependent on the modules selected for study by the student.

Course cancellation 

  • By exception, the College may be unable to run a course for reasons of operational viability and student experience. In the event that a course is unable to run, we will advise applicants and enrolled students at the earliest possible opportunity in writing. Students will be provided with the opportunity to change course, where possible, or to receive a full refund of any deposit or tuition fees paid. 

Course and module changes

  • Please note: as stated in the terms and conditions of study, the College will not usually make material changes to modules or programmes that students have agreed to study, except where the changes will benefit the student experience or changes are necessary due to circumstances outside of the control of the College. 
  • Where material changes are necessary or proposed, student representatives will be consulted and the College will provide appropriate support and guidance. We will advise applicants and enrolled students at the earliest possible opportunity.

Regulations and policies

  • The College may make reasonable changes to our regulations and policies from time to time. Such changes will usually come into force at the beginning of the following academic year and students will be informed of any changes annually. 
  • Changes will be made to: 
  • ensure the proper delivery of the educational service
  • meet legal or regulatory requirements
  • reflect current guidance or good practice
  • put in place the results of student feedback
  • improve the student experience.  
  • Read College regulations and policies
