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.
Birkbeck became part of the University of London in 1920 on condition it continued to provide flexible, evening teaching.
In 2007 Birkbeck took its flexible teaching provision to Stratford, east London, with a selection of courses.
In 2010 Birkbeck introduced intensive, three-year evening undergraduate courses to complement its traditional part-time, four-year evening courses.
All Birkbeck’s undergraduate degrees now take three years, taught on weekday evenings between 6pm and 9pm.
In autumn 2013 Birkbeck opened University Square Stratford, a £33-million purpose-built campus in Stratford, east London.
