Your results

Your official result will be made available to you to view via My Birkbeck. Results are never given out over the telephone.

Any information about results that you receive from your department will be strictly provisional and unofficial. Results will not be confirmed until ratified by the appropriate Birkbeck Board of Examiners.

Please note that Birkbeck will withhold results and you will not be able to graduate if you have not fully paid your fees.

Availability of coursework results

  • Your academic department will send you your marked coursework as soon as the examiners have completed marking it; however, these marks will only be provisional, because the relevant Board of Examiners has to confirm all marks before they can be finalised. (When you receive your notification of results, therefore, you may find they show a different overall mark and grade from that shown on your coursework.)
  • Once notified, you will be able to check your published results on My Birkbeck.

Availability of module and assessment results

  • Module and assessment element results are approved by the relevant sub-board. This can take place throughout the year, but most results are approved at the end of the course, usually in late June/early July. Modules run by the departments of Management and Organizational Psychology are approved approximately six to eight weeks after the completion of the module. 
  • Once notified, you will be able to check your published results on My Birkbeck.
  • We aim to publish the module results on My Birkbeck by the end of August. 

Availability of awards for graduating students

  • Once you have successfully completed your course and the award has been approved by the relevant Board of Examiners, you will be notified when your award has been published on My Birkbeck.
  • The timing of this can vary depending on the level of an award, but generally are as follows: 
    • Foundation Degree (FD), Bachelor Degree (BA, BSc, LLB): by the end of July, except if you are completing modules in the Departments of Management or Organizational Psychology in the summer term - their awards are published by the end of the third Friday in August. 
    • Graduate Certificate or Diploma (Grad Cert, Grad Dip): early August
    • Master's Degree (MA, MBA, MSc, LLM MFA, MRes): mid-December
    • Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma (PG Cert, PG Dip): mid-December;
    • Certificate of Higher Education (Cert HE): from early August to late September depending on the last teaching date.

Diplomas for graduates

  • If you have successfully completed your qualification, you will receive a diploma. The University of London will normally mail your diploma to you within six months of formal notification of your results:
    • by recorded delivery in the UK
    • by International Recorded delivery to overseas addresses.
  • You will only be issued with one diploma, so please keep it in a safe place.
