Departmental events and student chat

Taster sessions

Our taster sessions are a great chance to find out more about your chosen course and studying at Birkbeck, University of London. A taster session will provide you with a more in-depth view of the College and your chosen department.

Update: Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, we are running most of our sessions virtually. Some departments, however, are offering in-person events.


  • Details will be posted here as soon as they are available.
