Birkbeck University of London (also known as Birkbeck or BBK) is a leading research university. What makes Birkbeck different, is the fact that courses are held in the evening so that students can fit their studies into their life, possibly around their work. The unique study experience and awesome location in central London, make Birkbeck the first choice of students that want to combine studying and working at the same time. The campus offers a friendly and welcoming environment. The staff is there to help and give guidance when needed. The main campus is located on the University of London’s central London campus, next to other universities. Nearby, students can find museums and galleries. Birkbeck contains teaching spaces, laboratories, and facilities needed to offer a complete university experience. Its library is spread across five floors of the main Birkbeck building in Bloomsbury, central London. Birkbeck offers undergraduate (BA, BSc, LLB), postgraduate (MA, MSc, LLM, MRes) programmes, as well as Certificate of Higher Education and Short courses and MPhil/PhD research programmes. At the undergraduate level, Birkbeck also offers a wide range of pathways into study and progression routes such as foundation degrees. The University is made up of five schools that comprise a total of 19 diverse academic departments, including English and Humanities; History of Art; Management; Law; and many more.

    Great experience

    I liked everything about my master’s degree, it was hard but worth it, I learnt so much and met great people. Compared to my undergraduate this course was completely another level much harder and more effort needed.

    The School

    Some of the lecturers go the extra mile in ensuring that knowledge is gotten and delivered. Some are just blatantly rude and aggressive (i.e. most of their Black/African lecturers). They make it seem like it’s a favour. For the International student part, they need more administrative assistants, especially when delaying via email, it was a hassle before they could respond and if not for my constant reminders as well as follow up, I could have missed being admitted into the University. I won’t recommend the school to anyone because the full-time students are mixed up with part-time students which can be quite confusing. The timeframe for lectures, they are in the evenings by 6 pm. No fun student activities.

    It is a boring institution!

    Work and study balance.

    I came to Birkbeck when I was feeling my job was just not for me and I felt like it wasn’t making me happy. I was really looking to make a change and find better balance in my life. They helped me find a new job and it’s been amazing! The staffs are so supportive not only in teaching but also the career life.

    Most of the classes are delivered in the evening so that daytime work won’t be affected. This is one of the reasons I choose Birkbeck because I can enjoy university life without affecting my daytime job.

    Great for employed people

    The lecturers are brilliant and thought provoking. Facilities are good too and you also get access to Senate House Library.

    Social life is a little more difficult to achieve and the typical student experience is missing. This is because most people work during the day and then attend lectures in the evening. This makes it convenient for full time employees but perhaps shouldn’t be the first option for 18 year olds who will miss out on a typical student life.

    Great for employed people

    The university is brilliant in the sense of lecturers I had. They were passionate about topics they taught and some went the extra mile and brought in as many guest speakers as they could who specialised in fields related to the module/degree.

    I would say its better for people who want to work and earn money alongside studying as you don’t get the student life and social experience you would do elsewhere as everyone is tired after a long say and lectures in the evening, leaving little room to meet people and make friends.

    The student union has a lot of work to do as well so to engage with students better and make them feel welcomed to events.

    Great for older people/full time employed

    I loved the lecturers and the conversations happening. Two key points one should take into consideration if they’re fresh out of college or under the age of 22 when applying for their first degree is that 1. Unless you’re already a confident person, its difficult to become active with the SU and join societies. 2. It’s difficult to have a social life and make friends as everyone is usually working during the day and then going straight to classes and tired by 8/9PM.

    Perfect location and for workers

    I’m currently attending Digital Media Designer MA and really enjoying it. The programme is very thorough and the modules complement each other. Even though the building is quite small the facilities are nice and modern. It has a nice library with enough place for most students. It’s also super easy and quick to print something in the library, and the system to do it it’s really convenient. Regarding the professors, most of them are helpful and good professionals.
    The timetable and workload are perfectly suitable for people who have a job while doing the master.
    I would rate the university as being a great university that met my expectations, although there’s not a student environment. As an evening university, most people are already settled and busy with their own job and life so it’s not good if you’re looking for the academic feeling. You don’t get to do that many friendships also because of the low amount of classes per week. However, there’s a cool bar with a rooftop, on the last floor of the building that offers great prices on drinks. Anyone who attends the university should try it- super fun and cheap.
    When it comes to the location, it couldn’t be better. It’s easy for anyone who lives in any part of the city since it’s located right in the heart of London.
    One of the perks from living in London is that you meet people from all over the world, and it’s really interesting hearing experiences of such different people and cultures.
    Overall it’s a very good university!

    Great environment and perfect schedule for workers

    I have studied a Master’s in Marketing Communication in 2016-2017. I have opted for a one year study program but you can even opt for a part-time expanding your program in two years. I found the classes interesting and well structured, professors helpful and present when needed. The school environment and public spaces such as, the library, canteen, bar, outdoor are very well structured and friendly. Classes are from 6 to 9 PM so this is the perfect uni for you if you are already working.

    Mature Univeristy

    If it is a good environment that you are looking for with good and accessible lecturers and staff, I recommend this university.
    The overall age of the students is quite high, that means that many possess qualifications and work experience in different areas. This will add up to diverse topics on sporadical discussions that may occur.

    Good School

    In some case it’s a good school because you can work during the day and go to school in the evening to make the best out of your career and excel. One thing I did not like is the pass mark which is 50, which is a bit tight for people like me working full time and going to school at the same time. All in all I’ll say Birkbeck pushes you to do your best.
