Birkbeck offers a range of courses across different levels of study starting in January - there are several postgraduate courses available, but also selection of short courses and MPhil/PhD programmes on offer too. You can find out more on our January start courses webpage.

Join us at our November Open Evening to learn more about these courses. Find out what makes Birkbeck so special and get the information you need to make a decision about studying at London's Evening University. You'll get the chance to:

  • Take a tour of our Bloomsbury Campus, led by current students, to get a feel for the area and discover where you will spend your time learning, studying and socialising while you are here.

  • Listen to talks from our support services, including student finance and admissions.

  • Meet our current students and hear from our alumni to find out what it is like to study at Birkbeck.

  • Attend drop-in sessions with our Support Services staff and with academics from each of our departments, so that you can leave on the day having had all your questions answered.
