Established in 1823, Birkbeck, University of London is a world-class research and teaching institution, well known for being London’s premier evening university. Most classes take place between 6pm and 9pm, and it is this unique timetable of evening scheduling that makes Birkbeck stand out from the crowd. Birkbeck students have the freedom and flexibility to use their daytimes however they like – a benefit that has become the university’s trademark. Evening study means not having to make the choice between getting a job or going to university. The resulting demographic sees an increasing number of school leavers and college students choosing to study here. Students can use daylight hours to work, take an internship role or gain relevant work experience, all of which helps candidates stand out in an increasingly competitive graduate job market.
