Birkbeck is London’s evening university, with classes taking place between 6pm and 9pm. This unique evening study gives Birkbeck students the freedom to use their daytimes however they like. An increasing number of school leavers and college students are choosing to study at Birkbeck, as evening study means you don’t have to choose between getting a job and going to university. You could use your daytime to work, intern or gain relevant work experience, which will help you stand out in the competitive graduate job market. With a global reputation for high-quality research, Birkbeck is part of the prestigious University of London, and has two campuses: one in Bloomsbury, Central London; and one in Stratford, East London.
