Political Diverse local nightlife City

UCAS code: B24

Birkbeck is different: our classes are held in the evening, so your days are free - to study, work, volunteer or just do your own thing. 

We know the conventional university model isn’t right for everyone. Our evening teaching gives people who care about their future something special: the opportunity to study at a world-class, research-intensive university and progress their life goals at the same time. 

With a global reputation for high-quality research and teaching, Birkbeck is part of the prestigious University of London, alongside University College London (UCL), King’s College London (KCL), the School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS) and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), among others.
