Offer holders welcome

Congratulations on being made an offer to study in Birkbeck’s School of Creative Arts, Culture and Communication. 

We are a big believer in lifelong education and for over 200 years, Birkbeck has been widening access to education to people from all walks of life. That’s why learning at Birkbeck begins even before your course’s official start date, with invitations to events, opportunities to directly contact your admissions tutor, and resources to give you an insight into how the School will support you.


If you've received your offer to study with us, we will invite you to dedicated offer holder events, including bespoke webinars and taster lectures for some courses. Please sign up to get a taste of what’s going to come in your course.

You are very welcome to come to all our public-facing events, including lectures, exhibitions, openings, and seminars. Feel free to bookmark and view the school's events calendar or view events across the entire Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

You can also find out about how the school will develop your career and strengthen your employability, how the facilities of Birkbeck’s Creative Practice Lab brings together knowledge across creative arts and design industries, and how our research projects inform how you will be taught.

In addition, Birkbeck’s Offer Holder Hub gives you general university-wide resources, including information about On Track, a free summer programme for all new undergraduate students at Birkbeck.
