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.
Our campus in Bloomsbury, central London, is a lively student-centred area that’s home to a number of other universities and colleges of the University of London, including University College London (UCL) and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).
We have got our own Students' Union too, which represents students’ interests and runs clubs, societies and social activities. Birkbeck has a range of cafes, coffee shops and a bar, and is home to the weekly Bloomsbury Farmers’ Market. We also have our own award-winning cinema at 43 Gordon Square in Bloomsbury, which hosts regular free film screenings.
While the majority of our students decide to live in private accommodation, we also offer student accommodation. Birkbeck students can access places in University of London intercollegiate halls and apply for places in the halls run by specialist provider UNITE. Free professional advice is available from the University of London Housing Services.

Probably a good part time programme but not adapted to the full time format. Overlapping in the material taught is frequent. Very theoretical content but solid teaching. I would recommend for someone look for an academic career.
I took a Diploma Course in Social Policy and the Care Sector and the experience was wonderful.Not only I didn`t have English as a first Language but also ,I was a full time mother to two very young children and my self-confidence was at a very low point.However my lecturers gave me the support I needed and for that I am forever grateful.
