Birkbeck is a world-class research and teaching institution, a vibrant centre of academic excellence and London's only specialist provider of evening higher education ndash; which means students can balance studying with work, family and other commitments.

Birkbeck was founded in 1823 and joined the University of London in 1920. Because Birkbeck lectures are in the evening, many students work, intern or volunteer during the day, making them better placed to get ahead in a competitive job market. Birkbeck also offers exceptional career development through its alumni mentoring scheme and its in-house recruitment service, Birkbeck Talent. Students are recognised and highly valued by employers for their maturity, independent-mindedness, focus and determination. That rsquo;s why 95% of Birkbeck rsquo;s students are in work or further study six months after graduating.
