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.
With a global reputation for high-quality research, Birkbeck is part of the prestigious University of London in Bloomsbury, Central London. All facilities and support services are tailored towards evening study, including an in-house recruitment service to help students find work at university and after graduation.
Birkbeck students on Whatuni say:
“Would recommend highly to ambitious students who want to network in the day and gain a degree in the evening.”
“Birkbeck is investing heavily in the acquisition of local new premises, in renovation and research. In a few years, Birkbeck will probably enter the top 100 of the best universities in the world, it is enough to see progression every year.”
“I enjoy the diversity, vibe and location of the uni.”
