Boost your career

Our flexible teaching times and modes help you get ahead of other graduates in a highly competitive job market, by allowing you to work, intern or volunteer around your classes. 

Whether you are a school-leaver just starting out, a working professional seeking a promotion or a career change, or somebody with an established career, Birkbeck students have one thing in common: they are highly valued by employers for their maturity, independent-mindedness, focus and determination. That’s why 85% of Birkbeck graduates are in employment or further study 15 months after graduating (HESA Graduates Outcomes Return 2020/21).

Achieve your career potential

We are committed to helping you make the most of your Birkbeck experience. Not only will you graduate with a prestigious University of London degree, but you will be equipped with the up-to-date knowledge and transferable skills demanded by employers.
