Fast-track conversion degrees for graduates

These courses allow graduates from other disciplines to retrain in economics, finance, mathematics or statistics. Completing these programmes allows you to compete on an equal footing with graduates in these subjects, whether in the job market or by moving onto an MSc.

The Graduate Diploma is a fast-track undergraduate degree for graduates, equivalent in standing to a three-year BSc. The courses take one year full-time, or two years part-time. All students on these programmes receive conditional offers (subject to performance) for a place on the relevant MSc programme at Birkbeck.

Our Graduate Certificates, available for some programmes, take one year part-time. They focus on the core skills offered in an undergraduate degree and can lead to direct entry into our MSc Programmes.
