HISTORY: In 1823, Dr George Birkbeck and his supporters launched London’s first-ever Mechanics’ Institution, dedicated to the education of working people. This foundation meant that, for the first time, artisans and craftsmen could learn about science, art and economics. Seven years later, the Institution took a further radical step by becoming one of the first colleges to admit women as students. By 1858, Birkbeck was the first choice for students who wanted a university education but who could not afford to study full-time. This role was formalised in 1920, when Birkbeck University officially became part of the University of London.
LOCATION: Birkbeck has 2 sites, one in central London, near halls of residence and near main line stations - Euston and Kings Cross and one in east London, Stratford. Most full time degree programmes are taught at the Central London campus.
