About Birkbeck, University of London

Exterior view of Birkbeck, University of London building at dusk with illuminated windows and signage.

Birkbeck offers a unique combination of evening study and a matchless central London location, right in the geographic and academic centre of the city, giving you exceptional opportunities.

At Birkbeck, you can build your own university experience, with as little or as much support as you need. Birkbeck offers a famously friendly, welcoming environment and we will be with you every step of the way, offering academic support and pastoral guidance, whenever you need it.

And studying in the evening doesn’t mean you can't get the full student experience of life at a vibrant city-centre university: our main campus is on the University of London's central London campus, next to other universities, surrounded by world-famous museums and galleries, in the heart of London, and we're just a few minutes’ stroll from London’s famous West End.

Birkbeck is part of the University of London. It is a lively centre of academic excellence, and London's only specialist provider of part-time evening higher education for non-traditional students. However, based on our academic reputation we attract many traditional full-time students too. Birkbeck has established its own path in higher education since 1823, reaching out to people that may have been overlooked by other universities. Today, Birkbeck is one of the UK's leading centres of excellence in teaching and research. The University has evolved from its first meeting on the Strand to the completion of the current £18.5 million campus consolidation project.
