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 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.

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.
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.
