What's on during Orientation

Congratulations on accepting your place at Birkbeck!

Once you have your place at Birkbeck, you will receive an invitation to the Welcome to Birkbeck 2021-22 Orientation Moodle module, and receive information for your programme induction online session.

The Orientation Moodle module  

To prepare for the academic year, you will be able to work your way through the Welcome to Birkbeck 2021-22 Orientation Moodle module.

If you are new to Birkbeck and university life, the module will provide you with guidance on how to approach the start of your student journey with us as it can feel quite different to your school or college experience. 

If you have studied at university previously or you are one of our returning students, the module provides you with a useful reminder of our services and where to access key information and support.   

The Moodle module provides you with practical advice on how to approach learning. 

You will be invited to an induction event by your department, either online or on campus. Once they are confirmed, we will also communicate details on face-to-face and online events organised by the Students' Union. On-site tours of our campus are offered. 

Pre-sessional study skills programme 

Get Ahead, Stay Ahead 2021 (GASA) is our popular pre-sessional study skills programme, this year running online. GASA covers a wide selection of study and writing skills, and takes place from 4-30 September. It is primarily intended for students new to Birkbeck but is open to all Birkbeck students and those enrolling in 2021.

Book your place on a Get Ahead, Stay Ahead programme

Recordings and resources will be available from the Birkbeck Study Skills Moodle module.
